A superconducting magnet is a magnet whose coils are made from superconducting material. Superconducting magnets reach much higher magnetic fields than conventional iron/copper magnets at a much lower electrical power cost. They must be cooled to 4K, which is achieved by a continual flow of liquid helium through the magnets.
