Design of the 2 Tesla Superconducting Solenoid for the Fermilab do Detector Upgrade
A thin superconducting solenoid has been designed for an upgrade to the Fermilab DO detector, one of two major hadron collider detectors at Fermilab. The original design of the DO detector did not incorporate a central magnetic field which necessitates a retrofit within the parameters of the existing tracking volume of the detector. The two layer solenoid coil is indirectly cooled and provides a 2 T magnetic field for a central tracking system. To minimize end effects in this no iron configuration, the conductor width is varied thereby increasing current density at the ends and improving field uniformity. This paper summarizes the results of the conceptual design study for the DO superconducting solenoid.
