No insulation? No problem! In fact, by challenging the conventions of magnet making, MagLab engineers created a first-of-its-kind magnet that has only just begun to make records.
Tapping into MagLab expertise on superconductors and cryogenics, a research team built a novel neutron scattering device that is more efficient and produces better data than previous techniques.
A new type of superconducting cable was successfully tested at high field at the MagLab, opening the door for the next generation of accelerator magnets operating at 20 teslas (T) and above.
New calculations that reveal the workings of a new type of high-field research magnet will aid in future magnet designs.
One of the best tools for testing new materials for the next generation of research magnets is a MagLab magnet.
Reduced-size prototype coils for the 32 T all-superconducting magnet have been successfully tested. The results include the generation of 27 T, which is a record for superconducting magnets.
On the road toward a groundbreaking all-superconducting magnet, the MagLab successfully tests a prototype that is already in the record books.
Global partnership is an exciting first step.
New process fosters development of high field magnets and new high-energy particle accelerators.
The MagLab has successfully completed construction of the cold-mass of a series-connected hybrid magnet for the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.
