Mini Magnet Gets Big Recognition

The MagLab’s "Little Big Coil" breaks into Physics World ’s list of the Top 10 Breakthroughs of 2019.

This little coil, about the size of an empty toilet tissue roll, helped scientists achieve a new world record for a continuous magnetic field, 45.5 teslas. The coil was wound using a superconductor called rare earth barium copper oxide (REBCO), then wrapped with white fiberglass tape.
