A dipole magnet employing superferric technology has been designed at the Texas Accelerator Center for use in the SSC. This magnet has a maximum central field of 3.0 T and the multipole components are of the order of one part in 10000. Because of the relatively low peak field the forces exerted on the conductors are correspondingly low and the problem of maintaining the conductor placement at high field is minimized. Since the steel provides approximately 1.7 T, the magnet is also fairly insensitive to small errors in the placement of the conductors. These factors contribute to making a magnet which can be mass produced at a relatively low cost. © 1985.
