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.
Scientists have developed a new way to test tape made of the promising high-temperature superconductor YBCO, a key step toward building stronger superconducting magnets.
This high-tech spool is one big bobbin.
MagLab engineers are building two cable-in-conduit superconducting coils for hybrid magnets, each with a resistive inner coil and a superconducting outer coil.
First direct evidence that filament fracture accompanies degradation of superconducting cables designed for the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER). The tokomak fusion reactor, now under construction in France, is an international collaboration crucial to future energy generation from nuclear fusion.
Two scientists put their heads together and created a machine that speeds along magnet production.
A magnet maker joins an international experiment that could change the world.
Like most people, we'd rather pay less for electricity. Which is one reason (though not the only one) that we use and build superconducting magnets.
