Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan, China


Dr Pierre VEDRINE (IRFU-CEA, Université Paris-Saclay (FR). Department of Accelerators, Cryogeny and Magnets (DACM) Dr Toru OGITSU (KEK, Department of Magnets, Japan)


The two speakers, experts in the domain, will present two types of applications of this advanced technology:
The lecture by Dr. Toru Ogitsu is on: "Superconducting Magnets for Accelerator Science":
Superconducting magnets are widely used for accelerators and accelerator sciences.The lecture briefly summarizes the superconducting magnet applications in accelerators and accelerator sciences.

Dr. Toru Ogitsu is Head Cryogenics Science Center at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization, KEK , Ibaraki, (Japan), in charge of the management of the R&D on Superconducting Technologies and Cryogenics Engineering Group. This Lab has achieved the design and construction of several worlwide class magnets as for instance magnets for the International Linear Collider (ILC) project or for the LHC including those for the HL-LHC.

Dr. Pierre VEDRINE will present the High Field magnets equipping the HEP experiments with as examples the 4 Teslas Magnet for the CMS experiment and the very large Toroid Magnet for the ATLAS experiment at the LHC-CERN.
He will describe how starting from this ATLAS Magnet, he and his team developed the design that led to the 11.7 Teslas magnet.This is the largest field MRI magnet in the world with these dimensions, installed and under test at the NEUROSPIN Center at IRFU-CEA, France.

Dr. Vedrine is the Head of the Department of Accelerators, Cryogenics and Magnets, DACM, at the IRFU-CEA in France.
Since decades, this Laboratory is involved in developing and producing these devices for equipping several High Energy Physics Research Centers in the world, with many of the most advanced magnets (e.g. at Serphukov in Russia, at various CERN machines including the LHC, at various international experiments such as LEP, LHC and at DESY, including the XFEL and the new Linear Collider in project.
