The next generation of superconducting magnets

HTS magnets could enable magnetic fields with twice the strength of their more conventional niobium-based counterparts. The extraordinarily high fields of which they are capable 30 to 40 Tesla or more are crucial for focusing the particle beam for another collider, the proposed muon collider. (June 2012)
