High-Temperature Superconductor Coil System for a Particle Detector Analyzing Magnet
The high energy physics experiment known as the Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search (MINOS), which is intended for the study of neutrinos, will incorporate a large particle detector system. The detector employs an analyzing magnetic field generated by magnetizing an array of steel plates, called absorbers, with a current-carrying coil. We have evaluated the feasibility of a high-temperature superconductor coil system that provides a 25,000 A-turn magnetizing force. An equivalent conventional coil system (i.e., water-cooled copper) was also designed for comparison.
