Coil

Copper_pretzel_coilJ.JPG (260 KB)

If anyone can identify this, feel free. I dug it out of an old image folder file and have no memory of where I got it from. It’s copper (and I’m only saying that ’cause it’s part of the namefile,) so probably used in some electrical application, and it’s large (about man-height –if it’s solid, it likely weighs a few tons). Beyond that I have no idea.

    Could be a really big ass heating coil.

    It looks like a big electromagnet. I don’t know why it’s shaped like that though, maybe to go around windings?

    It reminds me of the huge magnets used to measure the Hall effect.

    Looks like a deflection yoke of some kind.

    My, what a big Wang you have!

    What this magnet has to do with NMR I couldn’t begin to guess, since I seemed to remember baseball-wound coils like this being used as plasma end traps in experimental reverse-mirror nuclear fusion containment devices.
