12-16 June 2017: Ferran at MagLab

The PhD student Ferran Vallés Pérez visited the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee (Florida, USA) to perform electrical transport measurements on the superconducting films grown at ICMAB up to 35T, one of the highest DC fields on the earth, generated using a maximum electrical power of 23.3 MW. The study of these superconducting films is indeed performed with the challenging idea to use them for the fabrication of electromagnets that will be capable to generate these high magnetic fields with much less power consumption.
