    Good questions!

    The Safety Review of the high field magnet is finished and we are quite happy that we initiated it. And at just the right time, too. There were some very useful questions that came up and we are now setting up a schedule to address them.Thank you very much to our external reviewers for taking the time. You've been immensely helpful!

    What is a safety review?

    With all but a few short weeks to go, it's almost time. The final round of tests is just around the corner. The last few screws are still being tightened. And then, for the first time ever, the high field magnet will be cooled to its operating temperature of 4 Kelvin and powered up. But before that happens, Peter Smeibidl's team has opted to subject the magnet to a safety review. The scientists …

    The weeks of the "turret"

    In the following weeks we will be busy with the installation of the "turret" on top of the magnet. Up to now there is only a big opening with a flange. The turret will host the so-called "current leads". These will conduct the 20,000 Amps almost without any losses - from room temperature to liquid helium temperature where the superconducting coil sits. The current leads are delicate components. …
