Advanced research magnet systems

Objective

Description:

A pulsed magnet station will be set up at the SNCMP Toulouse and will be made available to the specific community as a user magnet. The target field is at least 80 T in a 20 mm bore and with 30ms pulse duration. The magnet will be built according to the "coilin/coilex" scheme where two coaxial magnets are energised from different power sources. The outer magnet (coilex) will be wound from copper wire clad with steel and the 14 MJ capacitor banks will energise it, which is available at SNCMP. The inner magnet has to support the full force of the 80T + field, this will be made with very strong wires and optimised internal reinforcement. This will be energised by a 160KJ, 18 KV capacitor banks that will be obtained upgrading the existing transportable bank. The completed magnet system will be tested with critical experiments in order to provide full user access. The technology developed in this project can be transferred to other laboratories, in particular to large installations and thus increase access to research infrastructure.
