The high field superferric magnet Design and test of a new dipole magnet for future hadron colliders Academic Article uri icon


  • The Texas Accelerator Center has successfully tested a 6 T superferric dipole magnet of a design appropriate for future hadron colliders. The magnet surpassed the design field (90% of the short sample limit) on its first quench without training. The measured field quality is in excellent agreement with design calculations and meets collider requirements. The magnetic field design was developed at Rice University and is the subject of a Master's thesis. The features of the design include simple construction, efficient use of superconductor, and adequate containment of magnetic forces. A straightforward extension of the design to an 8 T dipole is under development. The high-field superferric magnet constitutes a significant improvement in magnet performance and cost for future accelerators. 1988.
