9 Tesla Solenoid successfully tested


A Bilfinger Noell superconducting 9 Tesla Solenoid was successfully tested under cryogen-free conditions at 4 K up to nominal current without any training quench, reaching a magnetic field slightly above 9 T. The 96 mm cold bore magnet with NbTi conductor was designed for a homogeneity of 0.1% in 10 mm DSV (diameter of spherical volume). Possible applications are for sample environment, nano technology and quantum computing.
