He will be combining his state-of-the-art numerical modeling expertise with his extensive knowledge of the PFM technique to produce portable and commercially-viable high field magnet systems.
The long-standing nature of the previous record is revealing, says David Cardwell, professor of superconducting engineering at Cambridge, who led the research, in collaboration with Boeing and the National High Field Magnet Laboratory at the Florida State University.
The slice thickness and resolution can be seen to provide more images and detail on the higher field magnet. Resolution values are given in two dimensions but when multiplied by slice thickness they provide a pixel volume referred to as a voxel.

The ultimate barrier to high field magnet construction is not training quenches but rather the limit on flux density that the wire can support before losing its superconductivity.
The mobile unit also includes active magnetic shielding, permitting the light-weight high field magnet to be transported in the trailer.
She added, "The publication also connects users to industrial electric motor parts such as rotors, commutator, brushes, axle, field magnet and power cords." Santos continued, "New, used and remanufactured diesel engine parts and components are also offered on the site, including pistons, valves, rods, alternators, plugs, heads, gaskets, transmissions and other parts."
The US Domestic Agency US ITER worked closely with vendor High Performance Magnetics in Tallahassee, Florida, to complete fabrication and transfer 800 metres of sample toroidal field magnet conductor to the port in Charleston, South Carolina, from where it will be shipped to the European winding facility in La Spezia, Italy.
Given the size and cost constraints of many labs, achieving greater sensitivity through a higher field magnet may be beyond reach and unnecessary.
To test the conductor, NIST scientists modified their axial electromechanical test apparatus and used a new 16.5 T, high field magnet. Surprisingly, the conductor had electromechanical tolerance similar to standard [Nb.sub.3]Sn composites.
