Title: Design and test of a short mockup magnet for the superconducting undulator at the SSRF

Abstract

A superconducting planar undulator is under development at the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF) to provide the SSRF users with higher photon fluxes at higher photon energies. A 5-period magnet was designed and built for feasibility study. The short mockup magnet is composed of NbTi/Cu winding and low carbon steel former and was tested in a vertical cryocooler-cooled cryostat. The nominal current of 387 A was reached after 2 quenches and the maximum current of 433.2 A was achieved. The magnetic field profile was measured and a peak field of 0.93 T was obtained when stably operating at 400 A.

  • It can be shown that, by superposing two solenoid-like thin windings that are oppositely skewed (tilted) with respect to the bore axis, the combined current density on the surface is 'cos-theta' like and the resulting magnetic field in the bore is a pure dipole. As a proof of principle, such a magnet was designed, built and tested as part of a summer undergraduate intern project. The measured field in the 25mm bore, 4 single strand layers using NbTi superconductor, exceeded 1 T. The simplicity of this high field quality design, void of typical wedges end-spacers and coil assembly, is especiallymore » suitable for insert-coils using High Temperature Superconducting wire as well as for low cost superconducting accelerator magnets for High Energy Physics. Details of the design, construction and test are reported.« less
  • A 6 T superconducting magnet system conceptual design has been completed for the U.S. Department of Energy's 200 MW /SUB e/ Engineering Test Facility. The 1000 tonne magnet will be built of two grades of pool-cooled NbTi cable superconductor supported in 26 layers of stacked epoxy-plastic plates which form each 60/sup 0/ rectangular saddle coil half. Each coil half will be enclosed in a stainless steel vessel which contains the liquid helium that cools the coils and provides some structural support against the electromagnetic forces. The main force containment structure, external to the LHe vessels and located in the vacuummore » chamber, is designed for maximal access to structural and coil containment vessel welds for purposes of routine inspection. An LN/sub 2/-cooled thermal radiation shield is situated between the force containment structure and the outer vacuum vessel. Fiberglass-epoxy low-heat-leak struts position and hold the cold mass in place in the vacuum vessel and also withstand gravity, seismic and magnetic interaction loading. The magnet system, warm bore liner and roll-aside mechanism provided for channel changeout will be discussed as well as such interfacing considerations as fringe field effects on personnel and control instrumentation.« less
  • Two in-vacuum undulators IVU25s and one elliptically polarized undulator EPU100 have been developed for SSRF. Two IVU25s with the same hybrid design contain about 640 Sm{sub 2}Co{sub 17} magnet blocks and the dimension of blocks is 65 Wx25 Hx9 D. The EPU100 of the APPLE-II type contains about 690 NdFeB magnet blocks with the dimension of 35 Wx35 Hx25 D. This paper describes the magnetic measurements of these magnet blocks with the Helmholtz coil measurement system for IVU25 magnet blocks and the Hall probe measurement system for EPU100 magnet blocks. The measured maximum magnetic moment deviation and the maximum anglemore » deviation are less than {+-}1.0% and 1.1 deg. respectively both for Sm{sub 2}Co{sub 17} blocks and NdFeB blocks and satisfy the specifications of undulators.« less
  • Expressions for fields due to a point charge in 3D and due to a line charge in 2D are compared. Extensions to dipoles are made with emphasis on the relationship between dipole orientation and field component magnitudes. Differences between the effects on fields of dipole rotations in 2D and in 3D are highlighted and formulas for maximizing individual field components are given. A final macrogeometry extension is made and a closed-form expression is developed to calculate the field due to an arbitrary 3D configuration of permanent magnet (PM) blocks. The field optimization theory is applied to the design of themore » ALS elliptically polarizing undulator (EPU). Utilizing 3D field enhancement, peak on-axis field in practical designs can be increased typically by 5% to 40% or more over their 2D counterparts. The theory is generally applicable to any pure (i.e., no soft magnetic material) PM design.« less
