Status Report on SSC Dipole R&D
This paper describes the principle design features of the main collider dipole magnet that is being developed for the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC). The magnet is a collaborative effort between the SSC Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.1 The design is based on a high central field (6.6 T) over a small aperture (40 mm coil ID) and long (16.6 m) effective length. This paper describes the features of the current design and also reports quench field and field uniformity data from recent magnets. Test results from earlier short and long models have been reported elsewhere.2 Figure 1 shows a cross section of the collared coil and Fig.2, a cross section of the cold mass.
