The Basis for the Design of Superconducting Accelerator Magnets

  • Peter Schmüser
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 53)


The basic design principles of superconducting accelerator magnets were covered in a series of three talks following closely the lectures by K.H. Meß and myself at the Course on Superconductivity in Particle Accelerator1, Hamburg 1988. Since a detailed report is contained in the proceedings of the Course, I want to restrict myself here to a brief summary of the topics except for those points where important new material has been added.*
