Problems Arising from Beam Losses in Superconducting Colliders

Beam losses are a very important problem for superconducting (SC) high-energy accelerators and colliders. When protons hit the vacuum chamber, cascades of particles are produced and radiated energy is deposited in the surroundings materials, in particular in the SC coils. This energy can heat the coil above the critical temperature, causing it to go normal and the magnet to quench.
