The world’s most powerful magnet created

The world’s most powerful magnet created A powerful superconducting magnet introduced by American developers generates a magnetic field with a magnetic field of 32 Tesla, which is 3 times more than the previous record and 3,000 times “stronger” than a souvenir magnet for a refrigerator. The novelty was developed by engineers from the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in conjunction with SuperPower Inc.  The 32 T magnet design is a hybrid of low- and high-temperature superconductors. The developers simultaneously managed to create a number of new methods of isolation, amplification and supply of energy to the system. A magnetic field of 32 T will help scientists in the study of the interaction of electrons with each other and their atomic environment. A heavy-duty magnet is also necessary for the creation of scientific instruments – x-rays and neutron scatters. The novelty will be available for use by scientists from around the world in their scientific research, which will help in new discoveries in various fields of knowledge, including physics, chemistry and biology. The world’s most powerful magnet created To create a 32 T super-powerful magnet, scientists discovered the discovery of high-temperature superconductors in 1986 by Karl Müller and Georg Bednorets. The use of superconductors of this type has become available to relatively high temperatures at which the superconductivity effect is triggered. Scientists who made a breakthrough in the science of superconductors were rewarded with the Nobel Prize in 1987. Previously, a more powerful magnet was already created, the team from the MagLab laboratory managed to get a device based on ordinary conductors with a capacity of 41.4 T, but it required too much energy for its work (32 megawatts of DC power), which made it impractical.
