In the round: a new design for high-temperature superconducting magnets

Published on: August 7, 2019
Compared to other configurations, this novel design is more suitable for high-temperature superconductors, which are capable of operating up to a temperature of 77 Kelvin (a temperature that liquid nitrogen can maintain).

Two new simple, elegant magnets for particle accelerators could lead to significant cost savings. Researchers have found a way to create high-temperature superconducting magnets that could substantially simplify magnet fabrication and cooling.

UPDATE: The original audio file had none of the music, and sounded rather sad because of that, IMHO.
