After 10 years of work, lab officials announced Tuesday that the world’s most powerful pulsed, non-destructive magnet is ready for use at 85 tesla. The magnet, which has achieved 87.8 tesla and is expected to reach 100 tesla in time, is the most powerful of its kind in the world. Researchers can combine very low temperatures with a powerful magnetic field to examine materials at a nanometer scale, a billionth of a meter. Expected applications include studying large organic molecules, such as drugs.
