record-breaking magnetic field - New Electronics

record-breaking magnetic field - New Electronics

The Racetrack Model Coil (RMC) is one of several demonstration test magnets being built by the group to understand and develop new technologies that are vital for future accelerators. These RMC magnets are shorter: 1 to 2m in length, compared to the 5 to 7m ones needed for the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Juan Carlos Perez, an engineer at CERN and the project leader for the RMC, said: “The present LHC dipoles have a nominal field of 8.3T and we are designing accelerators which need magnets to produce a field of around 16T – almost twice as much.” High-field magnets are crucial to building higher energy particle accelerators. High magnetic fields are needed to steer a beam in its orbit – in the case of dipoles - or to squeeze the beams before they collide within the experiments, which is the case for high-gradient quadrupoles. The LHC uses niobium-titanium s...
