Part of the Oxford Instruments Group


With over 60 years of experience designing solenoid magnet systems and standard magnet fields up to 20 T at 4.2 K, we've also produced systems for applications including MRI and NMR ICR. Oxford Instruments split pair magnets achieve fields up to 15T with a variety of applications including neutron scattering and optical spectroscopy. A range of experimental opportunities can be accessed through our vector rotate magnets which offer the ability to rotate the magnetic field in two or three axes.
Our unique depth of technical expertise and hands-on engineering experience in the design, manufacture and support of superconducting magnets and cryogenic systems enables us to create custom-engineered solutions for customers’ specific application and experimental needs. As would be expected, our technologies encompass both Cryofree® and “wet” liquid helium-cooled magnets, applying the cooling solution as appropriate to the customer, the application, and the magnet design requirements. With our specialist teams, customers can work through the trade-offs in technology and budget to develop their system requirements into a realisable specification and design.
