Design of a Canted-Cosine-Theta Superconducting Dipole Magnet for Future Colliders


A four-layer canted-cosine-theta 16-T dipole has been designed as a possible candidate for future hadron colliders. The design maintains part of the future-circular-collider magnet requirements, i.e., a 50 mm clear bore and 16 T operating at 1.9 K. The magnet intercepts Lorentz forces with an internal structure of ribs and spars, minimizes conductor, and reduces the number of layers and magnet size by using wide cables. The role of iron and its impact on field and magnet size is discussed. A three-dimensional magnetic analysis was carried out for 1-in-1 and 2-in-1 designs including a structural analysis for the 1-in-1 case. Thoughts on future improvements during winding are also discussed.
