Multi purpose Magnet Field System

The MULTIMAG (MULTIpurpose MAGnetic field system) facility can be used for the research on magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) phenomena.MULTIMAG can be used to combine rotating, travelling, pulsating and static magnetic fields. Because no ferromagnetic materials are used, any linear superposition of various field types is possible.
