FSU National MagLab racks up new world record with hybrid magnet

After a decade of planning, designing and building, the Florida State University-based National High Magnetic Field Laboratory now has the strongest magnet in the world for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, a powerful technique used to study molecular structures in proteins and materials.

The 33-ton engineering marvel, called the series connected hybrid (SCH) magnet, successfully broke the record this week during a series of tests conducted by MagLab engineers and scientists.
