Abstract

The MICE focusing solenoids have three 4 K coolers (two for the superconducting magnet and one for the liquid absorber) and four HTS leads that feed the current to the focusing coils. The focusing solenoids produce large radial external fields when they operate with the polarity of the two coils in opposition (the gradient or flip mode). When the MICE focusing coils operate at the same polarity (the solenoid or non-flip mode), the fields are much smaller and parallel to the axis of the solenoid. The worst-case magnetic field affects the selection of the cooler and the HTS leads. This magnetic field can also determine the height of the service towers that house the three coolers and the four HTS leads. This paper shows the criteria used for Cooler selection, HTS lead selection, and the position of both the cooler and leads with respect to the solenoid axis of rotation.
