Technology Department

Superconducting Magnet Design and Technology (MDT)

  • Superconducting magnet design and technology: from functional specification to the construction of short prototypes.
  • Design study of the LHC upgrade and future projects involving superconducting magnets.
  • Superconducting magnet performance analysis and feedback on the design.
  • Magnetic model of the LHC, and support to beam commissioning and operation (FiDeL and WISE).
  • Superconducting magnet insulation development and CERN-wide support for polymer casting and rapid prototyping.
