permanent magnet

An MRI term for a magnet design that uses blocks of ferromagnetic materials (permanent magnets) to generate a magnetic field between the magnet’s poles.

No need for extra electrical power or cooling, reduced fringe field effect and no missile effect due to iron composition of magnet.

Weight considerations limit permanent magnets to maximum field strengths of 0.3T or less.
