A milestone progress made on ADS superconducting magnet

2012-11-25

It was announced on November 26 that a milestone progress had been made on the superconducting magnet for ADS - Accelerator Driven

 
 the superconducting magnet for ADS
Sub-critical System (ADS), which has been jointly designed by IHEP and HIT, the Harbin Institute of Technology. had made a milestone progress.

The magnet has passed the vertical test in cryogenic environment. In the test, no quench was detected, even running at an electric current 1.9 times stronger than that of the designed, which proved its excellent performance.

The magnet has been designed with a very compact structure that makes it easy to handle. Thanks also go to the leaders of the IHEP Accelerator Division and those of the HIT.
