Hardware Design & Construction
The scope of the work being undertaken is as follows:
Design and development of a large aperture high gradient quadrupole. Construction and measurement of the Q2 magnets for the inner triplet of the low-beta insertions.
Construction of eight such systems into which the Q2 magnets, the Q1 and Q3 magnets (to be supplied by KEK) and a number of corrector magnets (to be supplied by CERN) shall be integrated.
Design and development of a twin aperture dipole for beam separation, based on the use of RHIC dipole coils. These magnets, in conjunction with other assemblies of standard RHIC dipoles, will be used to combine the beams at the interaction points of the low-beta insertions. They will also be used to separate the beams in the RF insertion (IR4), where the RF cavities require the 194 mm channel spacing to be increased to 420 mm.
Construction, cryostating and measurement of D1 and D2 dipoles for the low-beta insertions, and D3 and D4 dipoles for the RF insertion.
Qualification testing of superconducting cable for the LHC main dipoles and quadrupoles.
Design, procurement of parts, including the HTS current leads, and fabrication of eight distribution feed boxes for the inner triplets.
Design and supply of the absorbers required to protect the inner triplets (TAS) and the D2 separating magnets (TAN) against charged particle and neutral particle fluxes emanating from the interactions in the two high luminosity insertions.
Design of fast luminosity monitors to be included in the TAN absorbers.
Supply of superconducting cable measuring equipment.
All three laboratories, FNAL, BNL and LBNL also contribute to LHC accelerator physics studies, with particular regard to:
