The lab's annual report showcases programs and activities from the previous year.

Successfully tested in 2017, this magnet is the world's most powerful superconducting magnet — by a long shot.

Series Connected Hybrid for the MagLab

The MagLab has successfully tested the 36 tesla SCH magnet, available to users since 2017.

The Platypus Project

This high-field, high-homogeneity demonstration magnet using Bi-2212 round wire could be the first mammal in the age of NMR dinosaurs.

Design of Platypus magnet
 

The MS&T Division is a world leader in building high-field magnet systems for scientific exploration in the biosciences, chemistry, materials science, condensed matter physics and mass spectrometry. Over the last two decades the division has developed more than 20 magnet systems and has held numerous world records, including our 45 tesla hybrid magnet and our 900 MHz NMR magnet.

The division builds systems for the MagLab and works with industry to develop the technology to improve high-field magnet manufacturing capabilities. The division's highly experienced engineers push the state of the art beyond what is currently available in high field magnet systems through research and development. The division also contracts with other institutions to design one-of-a-kind magnet systems; MagLab technology has been adopted by some 20 labs worldwide.
