Peter Wanderer, head of Brookhaven's Superconducting Magnet Division, describes the magnet that's being built for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams at Michigan State University

The output of the Superconducting Magnet Division is various superconducting magnets for use in both particle accelerators and experimental facilities. We:

  • work within the U.S. HENP community on future facilities and technologies;
  • collaborate with other science institutions world wide to both provide and develop superconducting technologies;
  • support the ongoing Brookhaven research program with emphasis on the RHIC complex.

Capabilities include:

  • Superconductor materials development/test facility
  • Magnetic structure design
  • Superconducting magnet fabrication
  • Vertical and horizontal cryogenic testing
  • Magnetic field measurements
