Testing of the MFTF magnets

Description: This paper describes the cooldown and testing of the first yin-yang magnet for the Mirror Fusion Test Facility. The introduction describes the superconducting magnet; the rest of the paper explains the tests prior to and including magnet cooldown and final acceptance testing. The MFTF (originally MX) was proposed in 1976 and the project was funded for construction start in October 1977. Construction of the first large superconducting magnet set was completed in May 1981 and testing started shortly thereafter. The acceptance test procedures were reviewed in May 1981 and the cooldown and final acceptance test were done by the end of February 1982. During this acceptance testing the magnet achieved its full design current and field.

Low-noise wide-band amplifiers for stochastic beam cooling experiments

Description: Noise characteristics of the continuous-wave wide-band amplifier systems for stochastic beam cooling experiments are presented. Also, the noise performance, bandwidth capability and gain stability of components used in these amplifiers are summarized and compared in the 100 MHz to 40 GHz frequency range. This includes bipolar and field-effect transistors, parametric amplifier, Schottky diode mixer and maser. Measurements of the noise characteristics and scattering parameters of variety GaAs FETs as a function of ambient temperature are also given. Performance data and design information are presented on a broadband 150-500 MHz preamplifier having noise temperature of approximately 35/sup 0/K at ambient temperature of 20/sup 0/K. An analysis of preamplifier stability based on scattering parameters concept is included.

Mechanical properties of highly irradiated 20 percent cold-worked Type 316 stainless steel

Description: Recent experiments have extended the mechanical properties data base of 20 percent cold worked 316 stainless steel to a fluence of 1.3 x 10/sup 23/ n/cm/sup 2/ (E > 0.1 MeV), the goal exposure of the Fast Flux Test Facility. Both uniaxial and biaxial tests were conducted on speciments of developmental cladding which were irradiated in the Experimental Breeder Reactor-II at temperatures ranging from 370/sup 0/C to 650/sup 0/C. Uniaxial tensile tests were conducted at strain rates ranging from 10/sup -5//s to 10/sup -//sub 3//s. Controlled Biaxial Strain Rate (CBSR) tests, recently developed at the Hanford Engineering Development Laboratory, were conducted only at a strain rate of 10/sup -5//s. CBSR specimens are gas-loaded to produce a constant diametral strain rate. These tests are otherwise analogous to uniaxial tensile tests. The tensile strength and ductility of the cladding were generally in good agreement with the predicted values.

Axicell MFTF-B superconducting-magnet system

Description: The Axicell MFTF-B magnet system will provide the field environment necessary for tandem mirror plasma physics investigation with thermal barriers. The performance of the device will stimulate DT to achieve energy break-even plasma conditions. Operation will be with deuterium only. There will be 24 superconducting coils consisting of 2 sets of yin-yang pairs, 14 central-cell solenoids, 2 sets of axicell mirror-coil pairs, and 2 transition coils between the axicell mirror coil-pairs and the yin-yang coils. This paper describes the progress in the design and construction of MFTF-B Superconducting-Magnet System.
