You’ve heard Earth’s magnetic field, now check out the world’s strongest magnet, located at the National MagLab at Florida State University. It’s officially the world’s strongest resistive magnet capable of achieving 41.4 teslas (a unit of magnetic field strength), thanks to a new magnet powered by 32 megawatts of DC (direct current) power.
This record breaking 41.4-tesla is far easier for scientists to use than a hybrid, and provides them with more flexibility to adjust the field as well as polarity during experiments. It’s available to visiting scientists for research purposes, joining a fleet that features a pair of 35-tesla instruments that, which until a few years ago, had been the lab’s strongest resistive magnets.
- MAGNETS COATED - Ni+Cu+Ni Triple Layer Coated. The Best Coating Available, which Provides a Shiny and Rust Resistant Protection for the Magnets.
- POWERFUL MAGNETS - Made of Strongest Magnetic Material! Strong Holding Power, Holding Power is not Less than 18 lb per Magnet with Direct Touch and...
- MAGNETS DIMENSIONS - Diameter 32mm x Thick 3mm (approx. 1.26" x 1/8" ). Tolerances: ±0.2mm x ±0.2mm.
Resistive magnets are the bread and butter of our DC Field Facility, and the demand of scientists sometimes exceeds supply by a factor of three. With the Project 11 magnet, we asked our engineers to ‘turn it up a notch’ and see what they could accomplish. This new brute delivers, and will enable scientists to make discoveries that lead to better materials and technologies that deepen our understanding of how our world works,” said Greg Boebinger, MagLab Director.
