Magnetic Flux Imaging System

Magnetic Flux Imaging System let's researchers create images of magnetic fields in superconductors

The Magnetic Flux Imaging System, used here by physicist Maria Iavarone, allows scientists to make images of magnetic fields in superconductors. The system is used to pinpoint the location of flaws in superconducting wire in order to improve the wire's performance.
