Shielded ADR Magnets For Space Applications, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Shielded ADR Magnets For Space Applications, Phase I
An important consideration of the use of superconducting magnets in ADR applications is shielding of the other instruments in the vicinity of the superconducting magnets. For example in a telescope application the magnetic field at about 1m away from the magnet may need to be in milli-gauss range. Shielding without proper technology and optimization can add unnecessary weight to the magnet system that can amount to a few times the weight of the superconducting magnet itself. This proposal discusses various approaches in shielding of Nb3Sn ADR magnets and suggests a program to develop the capability required to achieve effective shielding schemes that provide required shielding with minimum weight, and maximum reliability.
