Subject: "IR +- 2m Engineering" Meeting Notes 21 July 1995
Steve Lund, from LLNL described his design of an elliptical
aperture permanent magnet quadrupole, following and extending the
formulation used for circular quadrupoles. He is preparing a
publication; he will send Stan a draft copy. Those at SLAC
wishing a copy should so request from Stan.
Klaus Halbach presented calculations of demagnetization field in
an iron free permanent quadrupole. (See hardcopy version of notes
for his transparencies)
Tom Mattison showed radial field for the DIRC end of the BaBar
solenoid. Peak radial fields are 0.12, 0.24, 0.42 and 0.8 Tesla
at radii of 5, 10, 15, and 20 cm respectively. This is a serious
threat to demagnetizing blocks of Q1, resulting in bad harmonics.
Tom also presented results of a calculation of fields, projected
on the magnetization direction, for a hybrid dipole-quadrupole Q1.
These Q1 self fields are as big as 0.3 TESLA anti-parallel to the
magnetization. When combined with the solenoid radial field,
there is a serious demagnetization problem with Q1 to be solved.
Klaus related that different vendors of the same formula REC will
supply materials with very different resistance's to
demagnetization.
