High Field Magnetism covers the proceedings of the 2nd International Symposium on High Field Magnetism held in Leuven, Belgium on July 20-23, 1988. The book focuses on magnetism, superconductivity, superconductors, and magnetic properties. The selection first offers information on DC laboratory electromagnets and design of magnet coils for semi-continuous magnetic fields. Discussions focus on resistive and hybrid magnets, power, stress, and homogeneity of the field. The book then examines production of ultra-high magnetic fields and their application to solid state physics; laboratory facility for the magnetic flux compression systems using large explosives; and production of repeating pulsed high magnetic field. The book takes a look at an electronic monitoring system for hybrid magnets; non-destructive quasi-static pulsed magnetic fields at Toulouse; and high field laboratory for superconducting materials at the Institute for Materials Research at Tohoku University. The manuscript then ponders on high magnetic field facility at Osaka University; advances in high field magnetism at Osaka; and status and prospects of superconducting Chevrel phase wires for high magnetic field applications. The selection is a dependable reference for readers interested in high field magnetism.
