Title: Test Results for a Superconducting 28-GHz Ion Source Magnet for FRIB

Abstract

© 2002-2011 IEEE. The superconducting ECR source magnet for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University was designed and built by the Superconducting Magnet Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). The 28-GHz NbTi ion source magnet features a sextupole-in-solenoids configuration, which is comparable to the VENUS ECR magnet operated at LBNL. A shell-based support structure using bladders and keys has been incorporated into the design to allow for adjustments of the preload and reversibility of the magnet assembly process. The magnet has been assembled and successfully tested to operational currents at LBNL. This paper describes the basic design of the magnet and the passive quench protection system. The test results are also presented, including the quench behavior of the magnet, the training performance, and the magnetic measurement results.
