World’s strongest magnet

The world’s strongest magnet has been created and sits in the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University. The custom built split magnet took $2.5 million to complete, and operates at 25 Tesla – which is 500,000 times stronger than our planet’s magnetic field. If you are ever caught in one of these devices, let’s just say you probably won’t live to tell the tale.
You go, boys and girls. 25 Tesla is indeed impressive! *thumbs up*



According to researchers, it has the potential to revolutionize scientific research.
The scientists will be using the magnets to probe the unusual properties of materials under extreme conditions of heat and pressure. The strong magnetic fields should make it easier for researchers to observe atoms or molecules much more easily then if they were under less extreme conditions.

It means that if you are 200 lb. man standing on it, and they turned it on, you would weigh 100,000,000 lbs.

Interesting how they plan to use this. Hope they dont throw off the Earth's magnetosphere.

Shit me, if it's that much stronger this thing could extract magnetic metals from the planets crust without mining.

( assuming the weight/friction didn't exceed the power of this device)

lol at kid. They will observe atoms and molecules at these conditions.

In a field of about 10^5 teslas atomic orbitals deform into rod shapes. At 10^10 teslas, a hydrogen atom becomes a spindle 200 times narrower than its normal diameter
Lol I know 25 T is not even close but I'm sure this magnet will play its part in science.

They could levitate frogs and grasshoppers in that thing.

Diamagnetic levitation can be used to levitate very light pieces of pyrolytic graphite or bismuth above a moderately strong permanent magnet. As water is predominantly diamagnetic, this technique has been used to levitate water droplets and even live animals, such as a grasshopper, frog and a mouse. However, the magnetic fields required for this are very high, typically in the range of 16 teslas, and therefore create significant problems if ferromagnetic materials are nearby.

Found an old article. I think it was about this magnet:

http://www.energy-daily.com/reports/Florida_To_Build_Strongest_Magnet_Yet_For_Neutron_Scattering_Experiments_999.html

With this new magnet, scientists will be able to carry out experiments that aren't currently possible. One of the greatest challenges in condensed matter physics is to develop a comprehensive theory describing high-temperature superconductors. The combination of neutrons and high magnetic fields will allow scientists to study the normal state of high-temperature superconductors in the low-temperature limit.
So they need it for neutron scattering experiments. Yeah baby, we need to know more about superconductors!

I'm sure the magnetic field is very intense, but I doubt it's anywhere near that large.

This crap pisses me off. How about spending 2.5m towards something useful like an electric vehicle infrastructure that could be of benefit NOW rather then "hopes" that "one day" "some thing" may lead to the development of "some other thing"? Their making crap just to make crap. Bet he drives a nice car with those government grants. At least he can afford the gas. :)

Lol what the fuck. How the world's strongest magnet is not useful. You don't say a thing while your retarded superstars football players or other cocksuckers spend 2.5m a day. But yeah all the scientists in the world should work and create more consumery crap and gimmicks.

how about giving that 2.5m to poor people like me so that we can make awesome mods?

Shit, they could have just given that 2.5m to charity and stuff or other sensible/practical stuff. Whats the use for this magnet anyway? Just for show? Next weapon of mass destruction?
