William Mander (cq), service engineer for Oxford Instruments in Palo Alto, Ca., checks the clearance of the wall opening as the world's largest magnet, at 20,000 pounds, is guided into Research Complex I at Fitzsimons, with only a 1/2 inch to spare at the top. The magnet will be used for biomedical research by the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Colorado at Denver and Health Sciences Center. It will be the only one of its kind in the Rocky Mountain region, and will be used for biomedical research. The $5 million nuclear magnetic resonance magnet came after CU researchers were awarded a $6.5 million grant for the magnet. Workers used a crane to place the magnet and steel crate in position to slide through a whole in the wall. The magnet is wound from over 100 miles of niobium-tin superconducting wire.
