From Wonderful Engineering, January 10, 2022: A video trip of the 17-ton superconducting magnet ring designed to be the focal point of Fermilab’s Muon g-2 subatomic particle experiment that was moved from Brookhaven, New York to Batavia, Illinois.
From New Atlas, December 1, 2021: Neutrino research and other experiments may have new magnets to use in the future. Physicists at Fermilab have developed a superconducting magnet that can perform at high temperatures and higher field strength. Read more about the work of Vladimir Shiltsev and Alexander Zlobin.
Large, powerful magnets are a vital component of particle accelerators. The general rule is, the stronger the magnetic field, the better. For many particle accelerator applications, it is as important how fast a magnet can reach its peak strength and then ramp down again. A team at Fermilab now has achieved the world’s fastest ramping rates for accelerator magnets using high-temperature superconductors.
