Jeffrey Oleski with Michael Martens and David Doll
Persistent Switch Design for MgB2 Superconducting Magnet

High quality MRI imaging requires that the main magnetic field remain temporally stable to within 0.1 ppm per hour, which is achieved by operating the main superconducting magnet in persistent current mode. …Read more.
