For The New World Record Of Neutron Scattering Magnet

By a unique magnetic headquarters developed by the Florida State University's national high field laboratory (maglab) and Berlin, Germany's Helmholtz Center (HZB) has achieved a new world record of a neutron scattering magnet.
The series hybrid magnet successfully reached 26 Tesla in October 16th, before breaking the record of 17 tesla. As an additional benefit, magnet offers researchers a greater space to perform the complex scattering experiment.
Using this magnet system, scientists scatter beams of particles to investigate the magnetism in exotic materials on an atomic scale.
"During construction, I worried about the risks, because this is an entirely new magnet design for neutron scattering," MagLab Director Greg Boebinger said. "Now I can't wait to see the reward: the exciting science that cannot be performed anywhere other than in this extraordinary, high-performance magnet system."
During the magnet testing process, most superconducting magnets experience expensive and time-consuming shutdowns, or quenches. This magnet, however, reached full field without a quench and took only two months to test.
"This successful series-connected hybrid magnet is the result of more than 120,000 staff-hours at the MagLab," said Mark Bird, the MagLab's director of magnet science and technology in charge of the Berlin project. "It could not have happened without the incredible dedication and commitment of dozens of people here at the MagLab and at HZB."
The Berlin magnet was tested in a temporary location at HZB, but in coming months it will be moved to the neutron guide-hall and integrated with the rest of the instrument. Scientists interested in future use of the magnet should directly contact HZB.Source:phys.org
