Superconducting magnet system for RHIC

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The proposed Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) will operate at ion energies of 7 to 100/sup +/ GeV/Amu for ions as heavy as Au/sup 197/. This paper discusses the superconducting magnet system for this machine. It will consist of 372 dipoles typically 9.7 meters long with an operating field of 3.4 Tesla, 492 quadrupoles with typical length 1.4 meters, gradient 76 T/m, and approximately 1000 sextupole and corrector magnets. A detailed design has been developed for the dipoles which will have a clear bore of 76 mm; less detailed designs are presented for the other components. A proof-of-concept magnet has ... continued below
