Cryogenic Design Considerations of a Superconducting Magnet System for Self-Colliding Beam Experiments
One of the critical aspects of superconducting magnet design for controlled fusion is the cryogen loss. Frequently, large mechanical forces of electromagnetic origin are generated that must be supported by the cryostat with reasonable liquid helium usage. Should the helium consumption rate become excessive, then the experiment may become too expensive to run without an installed liquefier. For many laboratories, this capital expenditure cannot be justified. Even large, liquefier-supported, fusion magnets of the future must be economical and reliable, so that similar techniques will be utilized.
