CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid) is a general-purpose detector designed to run at the highest luminosity at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Its distinctive features include a 4 T superconducting solenoid with 6 m diameter by 12.5 m long free bore, enclosed inside a 10000 ton return yoke. The magnetic field is achieved by a 4-layer superconducting solenoid made of a high purity aluminum (HPA) stabilized Rutherford type superconductor. The magnet is operated at 4.5 K, with a nominal current of… CONTINUE READING
