Special Superconducting Magnets  
  Scientific Magnetics will design and manufacture superconducting magnets to your specifications.  Details of some of our bespoke systems are shown below.
We have also undertaken research and development on behalf of customers including Rolls-Royce and Siemens, and in collaboration with universities including Cambridge, Oxford, and London.
 
     
 
AMS-02 superconducting magnet
With a diameter of nearly 3 m and a cold mass approaching 2 tonnes, AMS-02 will be the first large superconducting magnet to be launched into space.  The 14 coils generate fields up to 7 T and are indirectly cooled to 1.8 K by 2500 litres of superfluid helium.  The system was shipped from Scientific Magnetics in December 2008.

High temperature superconducting magnets (HTS magnets)
Scientific Magnetics was the first company to make commercial superconducting magnets from high temperature superconductor, and retains unrivalled expertise in the field.
These cryogen free systems produce fields up to 3 T on axis and are used in combination with NdFeB permanent magnets in ECR Ion source assemblies. The use of HTS magnets provides a compact and low-power alternative to resistive electromagnets for this application. Use of HTS coils reduces the power consumption from typically 200 kW to 12 kW.
In addition, Scientific Magnetics in collaboration with the University of Oxford, via the Knowledge Transfer Partnership, have produced the world's first HTS magneto-hydrodynamic drive technology demonstrator.

5 T actively shielded asymmetric split pair superconducting magnet
Scientific Magnetics has installed and commissioned a 5 Tesla actively shielded asymmetric split pair superconducting magnet system to be used for Neutron scattering experiments. The vertical field magnet is installed at the Spallation Neutron Source, located at the Oak Ridge national Laboratory, TN, USA and has the advantages of very low stray field (less than 0.0005 T at 50 cm from the sample), an asymmetric field profile optimised for using polarised Neutron beams and a compact size.

Superconducting quadrupole magnet coil development
On behalf of the Jefferson Laboratory in Newport News, Virginia, Scientific Magnetics has been developing quadrupole magnet coils for the accelerator upgrade.
