April 17, 2014- MDPX magnet was delivered in February, 2014. Cool down occured between March 24 and April 11, 2014. First magnetic field of 0.5 Tesla was produced on the afternoon of April 15, 2014. Coils have been charged to 1 Tesla, and then to 2 Tesla on April 16, 2014. See the Magnetized Dusty Plasma Experiment page for more info!
