High-temperature superconductor coil system for a particle detector analyzing magnet

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The high energy physics experiment known as the Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search (MINOS), which is intended for the study of neutrinos, will incorporate a large particle detector system. The detector employs an analyzing magnetic field generated by magnetizing an array of steel plates, called absorbers, with a current-carrying coil. We have evaluated the feasibility of a high-temperature superconductor coil system that provides a 25,000 A-turn magnetizing force. An equivalent conventional coil system (i.e., water-cooled copper) was also designed for comparison.
