In his article, Füzfa has proposed, with supporting mathematical proof,
a device with which to create detectable gravitational fields. This device is
based on superconducting electromagnets and therefore relies on technologies
routinely used, for example, at CERN or the ITER reactor.
In this paper, we present two important results:
(1) how space-time is curved around current loops and solenoids carrying arbitrarily large electric currents and (2) how the consequent deviation of light could be detected.
However, due to the weakness
of the gravitational interaction, even the strongest
magnetic fields humans can currently generate will only
produce tiny space-time deformations. Detecting them
would constitute a true experimental challenge which
we glimpse at in this paper. Such a detection would
nevertheless open the way to new laboratory tests of the
Relativity says gravity correlates to the stress energy tensor, which is comprised of matter, radiation, and non-gravitational force fields. The reason matter is usually the primary component of gravitational attraction is as mbkennel says, the non mass effects are normally very small, but theoretically not zero. This is partly because the c^2 in E-mc^2 is such a huge number.

I'm calling b.s. on this. Everything we know about gravity shows that it directly correlates to mass, which a magnetic field does not have.
The answer to that question is fascinating, and it has to do with spectral emission and absorption lines. If you don't know what those are, find out and then you'll be well on your way to answering your question. However it seems like an off-topic comment for the subject of this thread.

Human beings use machines made out of Earth metals...how could they possibly know any truth about outside Earth conditions
If there were something, wouldn't we have seen something in astrophysics as a natural phenomenon? Maybe, but then again I haven't heard of natural superconductors.
We particularize the setup as following. We consider a set of 10 stacked anti-Helmholtz coils, each constituted by two superconducting solenoids of same length L=2.5m carrying opposite steady electric current of 20kA (which is similar to CMS-class magnets) spaced by a distance of D=2.5m. The external solenoids have a radius of l=5m and the 10 solenoid shells are chosen equally spaced between r=1m and r=5m. The length of the interferometer arm has been chosen to L=50m
