Title: Proposed design of SAMUS (small angle muon spectrometer) toroid and its magnetic field calculation

Abstract

Presently the D/null/ detector has three big toroidal magnets; one Central Toroid (CF) and two End Wall Toroids (EF). The EF toroids have central openings 72'' x 72''. Originally, this opening was meant for possible future end-plug calorimeters. Instead we are now designing Small Angle Muon Spectrometer (SAMUS) for the opening. The major component will be built at Serpukhov. The design of the toroid magnets and its magnetic field calculations is being done by exchanging information between Serpukhov and Fermilab. 2 refs., 4 figs., 1 tab.

  • We present a design for a beam jet spectrometer capable of measuring charged momentum and neutral energy from 0 to 2/sup 0/. This detector provides a valuable physics measurement both for ep and anti pp, and fits easily into our central detector design.
  • A description of the four-toroid rotator, a relatively simple apparatus particularly applicable to the determination of the corrosive effects of flowing solutions or slurries on structural materials, is presented in detail. In this apparatus flow of a liquid medium at known velocities is induced in a circular section of pipe without the use of pumps. Included are details of mechanical design, descriptions of equipment and instrumentation, a list of fabrication costs, and a discussion of operational experience. (auth)
  • Some experimental work is described which concerns two different ways of obtaining a constricted ring discharge in deuterium at about 0.01 mm Hg. In one type of experiment a constant external magnetic toroid field is applied, and an E centered pinch is formed by means of discharging a condenser bank of 60 mu f at about 35 kv. In a second type of experiment a very large bank of condensers is used giving a stored energy of about 1 million joules, which induces a variable toroidal magnetic field with a time constant of about 1 msec. This produces an Hmore » centered pinch. (auth)« less
  • The generation and/or sustaining of a Compact Toroid (CT) configuration using the RMF technique is a relatively new and unknown concept. In this report the basic principles, historical development, and current theoretical understanding of this concept are reviewed. Significant experimental and theoretical results, potential problem areas, and recommendations for the direction of future work are discussed. An illustrative analysis of the application of the RMF technique to a CT reactor is presented. The results of a recent experiment, the Rotamak, in which a Spheromak-like CT plasma was produced using the RMF technique, are presented.
