What is a Superconducting Magnet?

A superconducting magnet is an electromagnet where the coils are made of a type II superconductor. It can easily create steady magnetic fields of 100,000 Oersted (8,000,000 amperes per meter). They produce stronger magnetic fields than standard iron-core electromagnets and cost less to operate. Superconductor electromagnets produce a significantly stronger magnetic field than iron-core [...]
