Small additions of elemental Hafnium boosts current-carrying capability in Nb3Sn superconductor.

To increase the rate of particle collisions in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, new powerful magnets will soon be made from Nb3Sn superconducting wires. Here, researchers report a change to the heat-treatment temperature to optimize Nb3Sn superconducting magnet performance.

What happens when a kid with ADHD sustains a concussion? Using high-field magnets, researchers are working to find out.

A 40-T superconducting magnet would enable scientists to run their experiments longer at peak field in a more stable, homogenous magnetic field.

This is a standard Quantum Design Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS).

This is a standard Quantum Design Magnetic Property Measurement System (MPMSXL).

Several materials are in the running to build the next generation of superconducting magnets. Which will emerge the victor?

With funding from the National Science Foundation, scientists and engineers will determine the best way to build a new class of record-breaking instruments.

"GAP" award will help further breakthrough treatment system for next-generation superconducting magnets.

Recent measurements of superconducting tapes in the MagLab's 45-tesla hybrid magnet shows that the power function dependence of current on magnetic field remains valid up to 45T in liquid helium, while for magnetic field in the plane of the tape conductor, almost no magnetic field dependence is observed. Thus design of ultra-high-field magnets capable of reaching 50T and higher is feasible using the latest high-critical current density REBCO tape.
