Chinese scientists have successfully created a superconducting magnet that generates a magnet field of 100,000 gauss. The magnet will promote the development of superconducting magnetic technologies worldwide.

The superconducting magnet was invented by High Magnetic Field Laboratory (CHMFL) under the Chinese Academy of Sciences. As the world's first large-scale magnet capable of generating a 100,000-gauss magnetic field, the scientific achievement has created a platform for research on high-intensity magnetic fields.

According to CHMFL’s official website, the successful deployment of the large-scale conducting magnet requires a high-strength magnetic field. To this end, China has made great achievements in magnetic fields, including a helium cooling system and power supply for superconducting magnets.

As a key component in the creation of stable, high-intensity magnetic fields, the superconducting magnet can be used with various types of scientific instruments and equipment. It will also create improved research conditions in the fields of medicine and chemistry. CHMFL plans to create a 400,000-gauss magnetic field in the future.
