    Brookhaven Lab's Superconducting Magnet Division has a unique superconducting magnet (left) and research and development facility (right) for testing high-temperature superconducting cables and coils in a background magnetic field of up to 10 Tesla. The facility is equipped with hardware to detect and protect against quenches, where materials suddenly lose their ability to "super" conduct electricity without any resistance and revert to their normal resistive state.

  • The dipole magnet in Brookhaven's SMD has a large open space (left) into which a fixture for testing superconducting cables and coils can be inserted (right). The fixture for this project will provide support to the cable and, with heaters, will be able to change the temperature over a targeted length of the cable.
