ABSTRACT Magnetic shielding properties have been investigated using Hall
plates at 4.2 K in a parallel magnetic field up to 4 T for
superconducting cylinders with and without a bottom, which are
multilayer composites consisting of NbTi, Nb, and Cu. These composite
cylinders were fabricated by deep drawing a multilayer composite sheet
made by cladding and rolling. It was found that a sample of five
concentrically stacked cup-shaped cylinders, with a thickness of 1 mm,
an inside diameter of 20-40 mm, and a length of 45 mm, can reduce the
external magnetic field of 3 T to less than 10 G

    ABSTRACT: The Electron Nucleon Collider, proposed as an extension to the High Energy Storage Ring HESR , is currently investigated and a first layout of the Interaction Region IR proposed. The limited size of the machine, the low beam energy and the Lorentz force vector pointing in the same direction for both beams make the IR design demanding. In this paper we present the parameters of the IR magnets, show the boundary conditions given by the beam dynamics and the experiments. We present first 2D designs for the electron and proton triplet magnets along with the separating dipole next to the collision point. Different methods to shield the beam in the spectrometer dipoles are investigated and presented

    ABSTRACT: Superconducting conductors and magnets used in the fields of power transmission, generators, MRI, MAGLEV etc. experience AC magnetic fields causing heat generation in the magnets' structure and AC losses in the superconductors. Therefore, AC magnetic shields with wide frequency range in high magnetic fields are desirable to reduce heat generation within the cryogenic region and increase system efficiency. This paper describes the performance of a multilayer superconducting sheet as an AC magnetic field shield, eddy current analysis of MAGLEV coil and eddy current loss measurement of an R&D cryostat with a superconducting magnet. Eddy current loss was reduced to about one fourth of the loss level without a superconducting shield

    ABSTRACT: For new superconductive materials in sheet and bulk form, we have newly developed a precision simulation code. To reflect the measured critical current density Jc in numerical analysis, the angular dependence of Jc was considered in the present analysis. We compared the experimental and numerical results of magnetic shield effect and magnetic levitation force. The numerical results agree well with the experimental results. We found this code is useful for analyzing the properties of magnetic shielding effect and magnetic levitation effect. A more efficient method of magnetic shielding and a method of obtaining greater magnetic levitation force are discussed.
