A prototype of the transmission line magnet for the Very Large Hadron Collider is being designed at Fermilab. This is a single-turn warm iron superconducting magnet in a "Double-C" configuration. Iron poles form a high quality alternating-gradient magnet field in two 20 mm height beam gaps. Simple magnet construction and manufacturing processes and a room temperature iron yoke give a significant reduction in magnet cost. Open beam gaps simplify magnetic measurements and vacuum chamber… CONTINUE READING
