18/20 Tesla General Purpose Superconducting Magnet (SCM2)

18/20 Tesla General Purpose Superconducting Magnet

The SCM2 is a general purpose superconducting magnet with Variable Temperature Insert (VTI) and a 3He Insert. The operating temperature range for the VTI is 1.4 K to 300 K and from 250 mK to 70 K for the 3He Insert.

A rotating and straight probe are available for experiments. The 3He sample is in liquid and the VTI sample is in vapor/liquid with a sample space of 34 mm.
