Superconducting magnets cooled by liquid helium are limited to magnetic fields of about 18 T. When higher fields are required for research into solid-state physics, other types of magnets must be used. The Lewis Research Center now has a liquid-neon-cooled 20-T magnet system [1,2] that is being upgraded to reach steady-state fields of 30 T: This advance in magnet technology requires a new coil design and a change in the technique used for the cooling.
