MagLev Trains Magnetically levitated trains (MagLev) require large coils. The typical magnetic fields generated in them are in the 2 to 5 Tesla range. A low-cost superconductor is important because of the large amount of wire necessary for the coils. MgB2 superconductor has the potential to become the wire of choice because of its low cost and large temperature margin compared with alternative superconductors.
