The design of a large purpose built cryogen-free magnet is reviewed. The system has been manufactured for the Fundamental Neutron Physics Beamline at the Spallation Neutron Source in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
The magnet system will house a custom spectrometer and be used to measure a, the electron-neutrino correlation parameter, and b, the Fierz interference term in neutron beta decay.
Abstract—An 10T superconducting split magnet with a room-temperature bore of 40 mm was designed, manufactured and tested for X-ray diffractometer at The High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Hefei, China. The superconducting split magnet provides room-temperature splitting gap of 10 mm and scanning angle of 160 degrees for X-ray beam. As a result of magnetic field intensity considerations, the...
