36 Tesla, 40 mm Bore Series Connected Hybrid Magnet (Cell 14)

This magnet can be used for both condensed matter science physics and NMR spectroscopy. It is the strongest magnet in the world for NMR.

This novel hybrid magnet consists of Florida-Bitter resistive coils (insert) and a set of superconducting cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC) coils (outsert). The resistive insert and the superconducting outsert are electrically connected in series, a fact that gives the “Series Connected Hybrid” (SCH) magnet system its name. The two series connected magnets are powered by the same 14 MW power supply, rather than independently with two separate power supplies, as is 45-tesla hybrid magnet.

After a decade of design and construction, the Series Connected Hybrid was successfully tested in November 2016. After about one year of commissioning, the SCH was opened for external user operation in January 2018.

The magnet features two configurations for high-field research:

  1. Chemical and Biological NMR configuration: This configuration features an active shim/compensation system which achieves a magnetic field homogeneity at field center of about 1 ppm. The inner diameter of this configuration is 40 mm. Several sample probes are available to users of this system.

  2. Condensed Matter Science configuration: This configuration facilitates condensed matter physics experiments and features He-3 and VTI cryogenic systems with a sample space diameter of 32.1 mm.
