Researchers from the Accelerator Technology & Applied Physics (ATAP) Division at Berkeley Lab, in collaboration with colleagues from the Lab’s Engineering Division and the Applied Superconductivity Center at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL), have built a new superconducting magnet that shows potential for generating extremely high magnetic fields. It could enable more powerful, energy-efficient particle accelerators that are less expensive to build and operate than current technologies, leading to breakthroughs in high-energy physics and fusion research and enhancing the capabilities of magnetic resonance imaging machines used in medical diagnosis.
