stresses it experiences increase as the square of the field strength. Thus, the higher the field at which a magnet operates, the more complicated the stress and energy management techniques that must be used to ensure its physical integrity and the safety of those who work with it. All aspects of magnet design are affected, including the choice of materials for electrical conductors and structural components,
