What we Do


Since spinning out of Oxford Instruments in 2000, Scientific Magnetics has been involved in the design, manufacture, test and installation of bespoke superconducting magnet systems for academic and commercial research. The company has also provided consultancy to blue-chip companies such as Siemens plc and Rolls-Royce plc.


More recently, Scientific Magnetics has developed standardised helium-free magnet systems for pre-clinical and UHV applications.  A supply partnership with MR Solutions is one example of this new business sector.


Scientific magnetics now boasts product in several market areas, including, pre-clinical, research and UHV.


Scientific Magnetics operates at the cutting edge of superconducting technology. Our world first include:


Low helium, whole body MRI magnet

Cryogen-free superconducting magnets for a magneto-plasma rocket engine

Cryogenic system for a superconducting fault current limiter for a substation

Cryogen free 7T/240 & 7T/170 horizontal bore magnets

HTS magneto-hydrodynamic drive (MHD) for ship propulsion

HTS magnets for ECR Ion sources

Commercially produced HTS magnets

Cryogen free magnet for use in Space
