A Cyclotron Magnet Case Study: Would Replacing the LTS Coils With HTS Coils Make Sense?

  title={A Cyclotron Magnet Case Study: Would Replacing the LTS Coils With HTS Coils Make Sense?},
  author={Michael Anthony Green and Shailendra S. Chouhan},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity},
The cyclotron gas-stopper magnet (CGSM) at Michigan State University (MSU) was used as model for a study for whether HTS conductor is feasible for use in cyclotrons. The outside diameter of the CGSM split warm iron magnet yoke is 4 m, with a pole radius of 1.1 m. The desired field shape is obtained by shaping the iron pole profile. Each superconducting coil is in a separate cryostat. The two coils are connected in series through the warm electrical connection. Each coil is wound and potted… CONTINUE READING
