Introduction l.jpg
Introduction

  • Fermilab is a single purpose Laboratory whose mission is High Energy Physics research.

  • Superconducting Magnet Technology is one of theenabling technologiesrequired by FNAL to build and maintain the accelerators necessary to accomplish this Mission.

  • At FNAL, the Superconducting Magnet R&D program is located in the Technical Division.

DOE SC Magnet Review


Introduction3 l.jpg
Introduction

  • TheMissionof the Technical Division at FNAL includes “The development, design, fabrication or procurement, and testing of accelerator and detector components.’’

  • The Superconducting Magnet R&D Program in the Technical Division is intended to serve both the Division’s laboratory mission AND to serve the overall national long-range high energy physics plan (as outlined by HEPAP).

Hepap long range plan jan 2002 hepap subpanel report l.jpg
HEPAP Long Range Plan(Jan 2002 HEPAP Subpanel Report)

  • 1st Priority: Exploit existing HEP facilities

    • For FNAL TD = support Tevatron Collider for Run II

    • SC magnet repairs + specialty magnets if required

  • Next: Support US participation in the LHC

    • Now: = production of the 1st Generation IR quads.

      • This is in progress. (tour)

    • 1st generation quads are known to have limited lifetime due to radiation damage. (approx 6-7 yrs at full L )

    • Long lead times  must start soon on 2nd generation IR quads

      • more radiation hard, higher instantaneous L.

    • Developing these quads becomes an important part of our long range magnet R&D Plan

  • VLHC

    • “Beyond the linear collider, a Very Large Hadron Collider(VLHC) is an important long-range objective for our field. ”

    • The 1998 HEPAP Sub panel recommended”an expanded program of R&D on cost reduction, enabling technologies, and accelerator physics issues for VLHC.”

    • “Detailed specifications for the VLHC must wait for physics discoveries at the LHC.”

      • eg high field vs low field staging options

  • “…since a VLHC is so central to the long-term goals of our field, we strongly support R&D toward such a machine.”

  • Funding continue at ~ the same level

  • “…take a long-term perspective toward developing new technologies and techniques relevant to such a machine. ”

Recent internal review l.jpg
Recent Internal Review

  • As a New Division head and in preparation for this review I requested an internal review of the Technical Divisions Superconducting magnet program. This review took place on April 25-26, 2002.

  • Excellent Committee: J. Peoples (Chairman), S. Gourlay (LBNL), J. Strait (FNAL), S. Van Sciver (NHMFL), and P. Wanderer (BNL)

  • A copy of their draft report has been included in your handouts.

  • I will review briefly their findings and recommendations.

DOE SC Magnet Review


Findings and recommendations from april internal review l.jpg
Findings and Recommendations from April Internal Review

  • Tevatron Maintenance and Spares

    • Maintenance and spares program for Tevatron is effective

    • Should do a more systematic assessment of the value of various Tevatron improvements like HTS leads and re-coolers for spool pieces

    • Should complete ongoing spares and vulnerability assessment in collaboration with Beams Division

  • LHC Program

    • Positive about Fermilab Technical Divisions role in LHC IR Quad development and production

    • Appropriate to begin R&D for 2nd generation IR quads at this time because of long lead times for this development

    • Collaboration with LBNL, BNL was working well and should continue for 2nd Generation IR quad program

DOE SC Magnet Review


Findings and recommendations from april internal review9 l.jpg
Findings and Recommendations from April Internal Review

  • High Field Magnet R&D

    • Committee was generally positive about overall progress on Nb3Sn technology, design studies, cos q dipole program, common coil approach to dipoles, racetrack coils for fast turn around, etc.

    • “47 contributions to conference proceedings and papers is and impressive output for just two and a half years”… but:

    • “Fermilab Program has not benefited as much as it could from experience and current work of other magnet programs, in particular those of LBNL and BNL”

  • Materials R&D and testing facilities

    • Generally positive comments, “superb infrastructure”

    • “Development of Nb3Sn wire is a challenging and essential objective..” but:

    • Effort should be more closely integrated with the national program managed by the DOE office of Science

DOE SC Magnet Review


Findings and recommendations from april internal review10 l.jpg
Findings and Recommendations from April Internal Review

  • Management and scope

    • Magnet program in Tech Div has been “effective”

    • Responsive to HEPAP recommendations

    • “Size and organization in TD is well adapted for the needs of Fermilab and the national super conducting magnet program”

    • Recommended that FNAL continue to support the Tevatron, High Field, and materials programs at the current level

    • Recommended that FNAL commit to be a major participant in the LHC 2nd generation IR development

    • Improve communications with other labs via mini-workshops

    • Conduct reviews of model magnets (with advice from other labs)

    • Division head should appoint an advisory committee

  • We clearly are interested in the recommendations from this review as well, but already we have begun planning for changes as a result of this internal review

DOE SC Magnet Review


Response to internal review recommendations l.jpg
Response to Internal Review Recommendations

  • The head of the Technical Division ( ie me ) will appoint an Superconducting Magnet Advisory Committee (SMAC) to monitor and evaluate progress on superconducting magnet technology in the Technical Division and provide advice to the Division Head.

    • Representation also from LBNL, BNL, and perhaps NHMFL will help improve lab-to-lab communications

    • Conduct design reviews of model magnets before construction

  • Improve communications and information flow with other labs

    • We will seek closer collaboration with the other labs on common issues. (eg splices  work more closely with LBNL)

    • We will plan to host one or more mini-workshops each year at FNAL on accelerator magnet technology.

    • Plan to set up regular meetings with other labs both as part of the LHC 2nd generation quad effort and to use these meetings to exchange technology information of a more general nature.

  • Again, we welcome your comments and recommendations
