Correctors for SuperKEKB IR Magnets

The Magnet Division is building superconducting corrector magnets for use with the IR quads in the SuperKEKB project to upgrade the electron-positron collider at the Japanese laboratory, KEK. Each side of the IR needs five correctors. Each corrector contains multiple harmonics; each harmonic has one or more layers. No two correctors have the same design. Special “cancel coils” are being built to cancel fields from magnets that guide the adjacent beam. The fields of the cancel coils vary along the axis of the magnet. The correctors are being built using the Direct Wind facility. KEK has supplied the NbTi superconductor and precision support tubes. Magnetic field measurements at room temperature will be made at BNL.
