[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The Fermilab Main Injector Project will provide 120-150-GeV proton
and antiproton beams for Fermilab Fixed Target Physics and Colliding
Beams Physics use. A dipole magnet has been designed and prototypes
constructed for the principal bending magnets of this new accelerator.
The design considerations and fabrication techniques are described.
Measurement results on prototypes are reported, emphasizing the field
uniformity achieved in both body field and end field at excitation
levels from injection at 0.1 T to full field of 1.7 T

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The Main Injector project at Fermilab requires a dipole with good field quality from 0.1 T to 1.73 T with ramps to full field at up to 2.4 T/s over an aperture of 10 cm*5 cm. Operation of this magnet for the variety of purposes proposed for the Main Injector results in a design with low inductance, large copper cross section, and field uniformity sufficient for high-intensity injection and efficient slow resonant extraction. The resulting design is presented, along with measurement results of a prototype magnet emphasizing the field uniformity.< >
