Superconducting Magnets

  • H. Brechna
Part of the Nato Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 1)


Electromagnets were used since the turn of the century in physics laboratories in limited numbers. However, very extensive work on magnet development started around 1950 with the establishment of magnet laboratories and high energy physics establishments throughout the world. The literature in the form of theoretical and experimental papers, reports published in journals, research and progress-reports and engineering notes on various methods of magnetic field generation is quite extensive. Some books are devoted entirely to the subject of magnet design such as those by De Klerk [1], Parkinson and Mulhall [2], Montgomery [3] and Brechna [4]. More specialized books on beam optics by Banford [5], on magnetostatic theory by Durant [6], on applied magnetism by Zijlstra [7] and on field problems by Binns and Lawrenson [8] may serve as a basic references.
