A new type of pulse magnet, x-ray and neutron transparent pulse magnet, is suggested for use in high-field diffraction experiments. The magnet is made of aluminumbased material, so we expect that the scattered beam penetrates the magnet body and hence the total number of reflection points available substantially increases. This feature possibly allows full determination of the lattice and magnetic structure in strong magnetic fields. To realize this idea, we constructed a prototype transparent magnet consisting of aluminum wire and duralumin reinforcement. With a portable capacitor bank, the maximum field of 25 T was successfully generated in a 1.6 mm bore, even though the aluminum wire is less strong and less conducting than copper wire. Since the total energy is small (Ebank ∼ 100 J), high repetition rate, which is necessary for sufficient signal-to-noise ratio, is realized. Technical details, coil performance, and future prospects will be described.
