Superconducting Magnets for Particle Accelerators

  title={Superconducting Magnets for Particle Accelerators},
  author={Luca Bottura and Stephen A. Gourlay and Akira Yamamoto and Alexander V. Zlobin},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science},
In this paper we summarize the evolution and contributions of superconducting magnets to particle accelerators as chronicled over the last 50 years of Particle Accelerator Conferences (PAC, NA-PAC and IPAC). We begin with an historical overview based primarily on PAC Proceedings augmented with references to key milestones in the development of superconducting magnets for particle accelerators. We then provide some illustrative examples of applications that have occurred over the past 50 years… CONTINUE READING
