World record of a magnetic field strength for fully-superconducting magnets


The research team of RIKEN, National Institute for Materials Science, Japan Superconductor Technology, JEOL RESONANCE and Chiba University has developed a superconducting magnet generating a 27.6 Tesla magnetic field (20/Jan/2016), which is a world record of magnetic field strength for fully-superconducting magnets (as of 01/Apr/2016).

This success has been archived by a new combination of high-temperature superconducting (HTS) inner coils and low-temperature superconducting (LTS) outer coils (see Figure). The technical concept will enable to develop a compact super-high field NMR with an operating frequency of much higher than 1 GHz (23.5 Tesla), that is the goal of their development.


This work is supported by the Japan Science and Technology Agency through the Strategic Promotion of Innovation Research and Development Program.
