She saw several world-record magnets, including the 45-tesla hybrid magnet, which is the strongest, continuous-field magnet in the world. She learned how magnets are designed and built here and how researchers from around the world use them to discover new things about materials, energy, health and the environment. Dr. Eric Palm, the Deputy Director of the lab, gave the tour.
