Next stop: the #superconducting
magnets of the future
the superconducting #magnets
of the future are under development and #cern
is on the front line. to increase the energy of circular #colliders, physicists are counting on ever more powerful magnets, capable of generating #magnetic
fields way beyond the 8 tesla produced by the magnets in the large hadron collider (#lhc).
the photo shows the fresca2 #cryostat
before the insertion of the fresca2 magnet. fresca2 is used as a station to test the new cables in realistic conditions, i.e. in a strong magnetic field.
