Title: Magnetic System for the CLAS12 Proposal

Abstract

The conceptual design of a magnetic system for an experiment to measure the transverse spin effects in semi-inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering (SIDIS) at 11 GeV with a transversely polarized target using the CLAS12 detector at Jefferson Lab is presented. A proposal has been submitted to study spin azimuthal asymmetries in SIDIS using an 11-GeV polarized electron beam from the upgraded CEBAF facility and the CLAS12 detector equipped with a transversely polarized target. The main focus of the experiment will be the measurement of transverse target single and double spin asymmetries in the reaction ep{up_arrow} -> ehX, where e is an electron, p{up_arrow} is transversely polarized proton, h is a meson (e.g., a pion or a kaon) and X is the undetected final state. The details of the conceptual design of the shielding magnetic system and transverse dipole are reported.

  • The Central Time-of-Flight detector for the Jefferson Laboratory 12-GeV upgrade is being designed with linear-focused photomultiplier tubes that require a robust magnetic shield against the CLAS12 main 5-T solenoid fringe fields of 100 mT (1 kG). Theoretical consideration of a ferromagnetic cylinder in an axial field has demonstrated that its shielding capability decreases with increasing length. This observation has been confirmed with finite element analysis using Poisson model software. Several shields composed of coaxial ferromagnetic cylinders have been studied. All difficulties caused by saturation effects were overcome with a novel dynamical shield, which utilizes a demagnetizing solenoid between the shieldingmore » cylinders. Basic dynamical shields for ordinary linear-focused 2-in. photomultiplier tubes were designed and tested both with models and experimental prototypes at different external field and demagnetizing current values. Our shield design reduces the 1 kG external axial field by a factor of 5000.« less
  • Investigations of the readout electronics for the tracking system of the CLAS12 experiment have been performed for the last 2 years. The setup and physical problems of the CLAS12 experiment are described. The silicon detectors designed by the authors for the tracking system of the experiment are considered in brief. The electronic system contains the silicon microstrip detector and FSSR2 integrated circuit, which reads signals from the detector. The FSSR2 chip is described and the principles of the chip architecture intended for processing a time-variable data flow and experimental characteristics obtained on trials of the chip are set forth inmore » brief. Results of simulating the chip throughput under loads expected for the physical experiment and experimental characteristics obtained on trials of this chip are described.« less
  • A feasibility study of a bulk magnetic system for the target of an experiment to measure the transverse spin effects in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering (SIDIS) at 11 GeV with a transversely polarized target using the CLAS12 detector is presented. An experiment has been approved with the highest priority rating to study spin azimuthal asymmetries in SIDIS using 11-GeV polarized electron beams from the upgraded CEBAF facility and the CLAS12 detector equipped with a transversely polarized target. The transverse target in CLAS12 requires the shielding of a volume inside the longitudinal field of the main solenoid. In the shielded region,more » a transverse target magnet can operate; for the proposed magnetic configuration, the main solenoid maximum magnetic induction is 2 T. A bulk MgB 2 cylinder cooled in liquid helium is proposed both to shield the longitudinal field of the main solenoid and to provide a transverse field induction up to 1.2 T for the hydrogen deuteride ice (HD-ice) target. The installation and magnetization procedure will be described. The magnetization procedure has to be compatible with the polarization and installation procedure of the HD-ice target. The design of a test bench to measure the transverse magnetization of a MgB2 bulk cylinder cooled by a coldhead is presented together with the scheduled measurements.« less
  • For the study of magnetically confined plasmas, it is important to measure the q profile in tokamaks as well as the change of magnetic field configuration caused by the high beta effect in helical systems. The motional Stark effect has recently been utilized to find out the direction of local magnetic field by measuring the direction of polarization of spectral line emission from injected beam particles. The presented proposal is to improve the spatial resolution and the accuracy of this method by combining a technique of laser spectroscopy with it. A linearly polarized laser beam will be injected coaxilly withmore » the neutral particle beam. Phase sensitive detection of induced fluorescence from the polarization-modulated laser light tuned to a split spectral line will be used to detect the local magnetic field direction, instead of observing the polarization of emissions due to electron impact excitation of injected atoms. An experimental scheme proposed and characteristics estimated will be described. 14 refs., 3 figs., 1 tab.« less
  • A magnetic levitation system that enables a stable levitation even at a standstill without active control has been studied by numerical analysis of electromagnetic field. The new superconductive magnetic levitation system consists of superconducting coils and iron rails, and its principle of levitation is based on a magnetic gradient in space, which is obtained by the flux-conservation characteristic of superconducting coils. A two-dimensional FEM program was used for analysis of electromagnetic force characteristics in a two-dimensional plane and the distribution of coil current. These results show the two-dimensional stability of the system.
