         - 19 T/ 150 mm bore

         - 15 T /250 mm bore
  • Solenoid superconducting magnets up to 22 T
  • Cryofree magnets up to 18 T
  • Split pair superconducting magnets, typically up to 15 T
  • Vector rotate magnets
  • Custom designed superconducting magnets to suit specific applications
  • Integrated high field magnet with ultra low temperature fridge (up to 18 T)

We use a full range of cryogenic cooling technologies and work with you to select the most appropriate system for your experiments:

  • Cryofree superconducting magnet systems
  • Recondensing helium magnet systems
  • Liquid helium cooled (wet) magnet systems

Superconducting magnet innovation

Ever since Oxford Instruments' first commercial superconducting magnet was built in 1962 by our founder Sir Martin Wood, we have been innovation leaders and award winners, with a global presence in major industrial and research sectors. Although we are proud of our history, we do not rest on it. By working closely with our magnet system customers, we have continually developed our superconducting magnet technology from the first magnet made by Sir Martin Wood in 1962 (picture, left) to the present compact 22 T magnet (picture, right) and beyond. Our innovation continues with the development of new cryogen free superconducting magnet solutions, design tools for high temperature superconducting (HTS) applications and use of the latest Nb3Sn wires.
The majority of our superconducting magnets are customised and we are proud to have been involved in the most challenging projects. The most recent one is the high field, wide bore (15 T / 250 mm) for the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) as the LTS outsert of the proposed fully superconducting 32 T magnet.
