Resistive Magnets

The DC Field Facility contains nine resistive magnets ranging in strength up to 45 tesla connected to a 56 MW DC power supply and 15,000 square feet of cooling equipment.  All of our resistive magnets support the following research: magneto-optics (ultra-violet through far infrared), magnetization, specific heat, transport, high pressure, low to medium resolution NMR in highest fields, EMR, temperatures from 40 mK to 800 K, dependence of optical and transport properties on field orientation, and more.

45 Tesla, 32 mm Bore Hybrid Magnet (Cell 15)

The lab’s flagship magnet, the 45 tesla hybrid is composed of a 33.5 tesla resistive magnet nested in an 11.5 tesla outsert.

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

The Magnet Lab has embarked on innovative projects to develop unique hybrid magnet systems. This is novel because a set of Florida-Bitter resistive coils (insert) and a set of superconducting cable-in-conduit conductor (CICC) coils (outsert) are driven in series with the same power supply, rather than independently.

35 Tesla, 32 mm Bore Magnet (Cell 8)

This is a standard 35 tesla solenoid magnet with a 32-mm bore. This magnet can accommodate furnaces, dewars and other custom experiments.

35 Tesla, 32 mm Bore Magnet (Cell 12)

This standard 20 MW solenoid magnet produces 35 tesla in a 32-mm bore.

31 Tesla, 50 mm Bore Magnet (Cell 9)

This standard 20 MW solenoid magnet produces 31 tesla in a 50-mm bore. This magnet usually has an advanced cryogenic system installed providing temperatures from 300 K to 300 mK.

31 Tesla, 50 mm Bore Magnet (Cell 7)

This standard 18 MW solenoid magnet produces 31 tesla in a 50-mm bore for a variety of experimental inserts.

30 Tesla, 32 mm Bore High-Homogeneity Magnet (Cell 2)

This 50 ppm unshimmed high-homogeneity resistive magnet provides a 32-mm bore available for medium resolution NMR. A helium-3 cryogenic system allows experiments down to 500 mK.

25 Tesla, 32 mm Split Helix Magnet (Cell 5)

The Split-Florida Helix (SFH) magnet is the first modern powered magnet optimized for advanced optical spectroscopy techniques requiring wide, free-space access to samples.
