Abstract:

Please note that the we kindly ask you when connecting to this seminar to mute your microphones and cameras in order to have a good connection.

The GaToroid project represents a novel concept of a gantry for particle therapy, where a static toroidal magnet is used to bend the particle beam towards the patient from different directions.

In order to assess the technical feasibility of such a device, the research group has lately been focused on the development of a scaled down demonstrator magnet.

In this talk, the advances on the mechanical design will be presented, starting from an ideal coil configuration and gradually introducing modifications to meet structural, operational and manufacturing requirements.

The impact of the changes on the field quality has been evaluated throughout, and the numerical models involved will be shortly subjected to validation through experimental evidence.
