Overview

WuhanHighMagneticFieldCenter,establishedin2005,isaimedatthedevelopmentandapplicationofpulsedmagneticfiledandthescientificresearchwithpulsedmagneticfield.Presently,themaintaskinthecenteristherunningmanagementoftheKeyLaboratoryofPulsedHighMagneticFieldoftheMinistryofEducationandtheconstructionofthePulsedHighMagneticFieldFacility,whichisoneofthetwelveNationalMajorScienceandTechnologyInfrastructureProjectsinthe“NationalEleventhFive-yearPlan”.

TheKeyLaboratoryofPulsedHighMagneticFieldoftheMinistryofEducationisnowequippedwithtwomeasuringstations.The1MJ/25kV/30kAcapacitorbank,50-70Tmagnets,heliumcryostat,measuringandcontrolsystemareavailablefordifferentscientificresearch.Theexperimentsonmagneticandtransportpropertiesforsuperconductorsandsemiconductors,disinfectiononfoodhavebeencarried.Theresearchactivitiesonapplicationofpulsedhighmagneticfieldincludemagneticforming,magnetizing,magneticcooling,compactpulsedmagneticfieldequipmentandpulsedpowersupply.

ThePulsedHighMagneticFieldFacilityisthefirstmajorscienceandtechnologyinfrastructureprojectwhichwillbebuiltbytheuniversitiesunderthedirectleadershipoftheMinistryofEducation.Thetotalinvestmentofthepulsedmagneticfieldfacilityis133millionRMB.Thefacilityisplannedtobeopenforexternalusersintheyearof2012.Developmentofa12MJcapacitorbankand100MJ/100MVApulsegeneratorpowersupplyisplannedinordertoobtainpulsedmagneticfieldsfrom50Tto80Twithpulsedurationfrom15msto1000ms.Variousexperimentalconditions,suchaslowtemperature(from30mKto300K),highpressureandintenselaserarealsoplanned.ThiswouldproviderausefulresearchtoolforthescientificcommunitiesfromChina,aswellastheothercountries.Afterthefacilityisbuiltup,itwillnotonlyprovideexternaluserstoperformextensiveexperimentsinphysics,chemistry,lifescienceandmaterialscience,butalsomotivatethedevelopmentofthenewtechnologyinelectromagnetics.
