Berkeley Laboratory builds state-of-the-art magnet for FRIB accelerator

FRIB’s heavy-ion beam will begin with a high-performance source of heavy ions, the electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) source. A key component of the ECR source is an advanced superconducting magnet. FRIB partnered with the Berkeley Center for Magnet Technology (BCMT) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) to design and build the state-of-the-art magnet.
