The superconducting magnet which provides the magnetic field for the 360-cm (12-ft) Argonne National Laboratory bubble chamber is massive in size, weight, and stored energy in comparison with most superconducting magnets presently in use. The magnet is housed in a donut-shaped cryostat with a height of approximately 300 cm and inside and outside diameters of 470 and 550 cm, respectively. The cryostat is described in detail elsewhere [1].
