Current Status of the Texas A&M Magnet R&D Program Academic Article uri icon


  • The current status of the Texas A&M superconducting magnet R&D program is reported. The program is implementing a design philosophy in which Lorentz stress is managed within the coils of a block-coil geometry, isostatic preload is delivered using an arrangement of pressurized Wood's metal filled bladders, insulation utilizes fine-filament Silane-sized S-glass, and low-field multipoles are constrained by a flux plate integrated with the coil package. Construction progress on TAMU3 is reported and plans for a full-aperture dipole TAMU5 are discussed. 2010 IEEE.
