The recent discovery of high critical field strength superconductors has led to a very intensive interest in the building of superconducting coils to generate intense magnetic fields over large volumes. The only power required would be that necessary to establish the magnetic field and the coil would act much like a permanent magnet. However, the magnetic field would not be limited by a saturation magnetic fields but by the critical field of the material used.
