superconducting magnet

[¦sü·pər·kən′dəkt·iŋ ′mag·nət]
(cryogenics)
An electromagnet whose coils are made of a type II superconductor with a high transition temperature and extremely high critical field, such as niobium tin, Nb3Sn; it is capable of generating magnetic fields of 100,000 oersteds (8,000,000 amperes per meter) and more with no steady power dissipation.
