Insight on the cryogenic suspension and alignment of the 8T superconducting solenoid with iron yoke

Lobanov, Nikolai; Battisson, Stephen; Tunningley, Thomas; Smith, Jessica Faye


An 8 T superconducting solenoid was commissioned at the Australian National University to make precision measurements of fusion cross-sections. During operation at high field, forces between the solenoid and the iron yoke that houses it must always be maintained within safe limits and precision location of the solenoid coil with tight tolerances is necessary to achieve this. Thermal contraction of components can impact the locating structure of the solenoid coil, leading to unsafe forces. For...[Show more]
