ASD Seminar Series

The goal of this seminar is to encourage interaction between groups, act as an open forum to share ideas, achievements, and results, promote collaboration, communicate what APS personnel are doing and to educate people. Talks can be projects, tasks, ideas, etc. that are new, unfinished, ongoing as well as fully developed. This seminar is very informal and does not require a fully formatted presentation.

To suggest a speaker or to volunteer, please contact Geoff Waldschmidt

Next Seminar:  Wednesday, November 28, 2018  @ 11:00 am, Conf. Rm. A1100

TITLE:  Development of the helical SCU magnet and introduction to the SCU magnetic measurement system for APSU


ABSTRACT:  Development of the helical SCU magnet from a concept to the final design will be presented. Early prototypes used to develop the unique winding scheme will be described as well as lessons learned along the way. Magnetic measurement data collected during testing in building 314 will be shown which will lead into a discussion of the magnetic measurement system.  The current system and plans for measuring SCUs in the long SCU cryostat of the APSU will be described.
