Advanced superconductors for high field magnets
Superconducting (SC) magnets are very powerful electromagnets that can produce greater magnetic fields with lower operation costs. SC magnets are used in a range of scientific equipment such as MRI machines, NMR spectrometers and particle accelerators. However, commercially available SC magnets are not suitable for large infrastructures such as the European Magnetic Field Laboratory (EMFL). Recently, EMFL facilities have proposed the implementation of high-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnets. The EU-funded SuperEMFL project intends to develop HTS technology that will give an entirely new dimension to the EMFL. The project aims to provide the European high field user community with higher SC magnetic fields and innovative SC magnet geometries that will result in a significant energy reduction of the static field at EMFL facilities.
