Auburn University opens unique, world-class plasma physics research laboratory today

AUBURN UNIVERSITY — Auburn’s College of Sciences and Mathematics introduced its one-of-a-kind Magnet Laboratory and 6, 000-pound superconducting magnet at an open house today.

The facility, housed in the Department of Physics, will support plasma physics research for Auburn University faculty and students, as well as national and international scientists who will come to Auburn to perform experimental and theoretical studies. The magnet will allow researchers to shape the structure of the magnetic field and as a result, to perform potentially ground-breaking experiments.
