RAMBO Magnet Attracts Attention

Posted on: 03/13/2014
A small, powerful magnetic pulse generator dubbed RAMBO by its developers at Rice University will allow researchers to run spectroscopy-based experiments on materials in pulsed magnetic fields of up to 30 tesla.

RAMBO—short for Rice Advanced Magnet with Broadband Optics—was developed in conjunction with the Institute for Materials Research at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan. RAMBO also has windows that allow researchers to directly send a laser beam to the sample and collect data at close range, allowing them to view the sample inside the magnet.

The unit can run a new experiment in a 30-tesla field every 10 minutes (less for smaller peak fields), unlike field generators at large laboratories that require hours to cool down.
