Status of magnet system for RHIC

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A Relativistic Heavy Ion Colliding beam accelerator (RHIC) has been proposed at Brookhaven National Laboratory. The machine would generate colliding beams of energies up to 100 GeV/amu of ions as heavy as /sup 197/Au. The facilities necessary to accelerate these ions up to 11 GeV/amu are either already operational or under construction at BNL. This paper will discuss the magnet system for the actual collider ring itself, which will further accelerate the particles to beam energies of between 7 and 100 GeV/amu, store them, and provide interaction regions. This magnet system will consist of two rings of superconducting magnets placed ... continued below
