MICE Solenoid Magnetic Field Measurement

Ziptrack magnetic field mapping system MICE solenoid

Terry Hart, MICE CM 21, June 6, 2008


Mice analysis considerations

MICE Analysis Considerations

  • MICE goal to measure emittance difference

    (before and after cooling section) to one part in 10-4.

  • Solenoid magnetic field must be mapped to enable this.

    • Verify that 4 Tesla field is uniform in tracker region to 1%

    • Map fringe field out to where it drops to 400 Gauss

      (about 1 meter beyond ends)

    • Fit measured points to functions consistent with Maxwell’s equations

    • Understand effect of shields

Spectrometer Solenoid Field Mapping

Ziptrack:

  • Long metal beam passes through or perpendicular to magnet bore

  • Special beam insert for MICE solenoid

  • Ends translatable under computer control using LabView interface

  • Cart w/carriage holding Hall probe rides on beamcontrolled & read out via LabView

    • Position resolution: x,y – 10 µm; z – 10 µm

    • Position repeatability:* x,y – 10µm; z – 10µm

      • current performance goals – R&D in progress

Terry Hart, MICE CM 21, June 6, 2008


Rough schedule

Rough Schedule

  • Solenoid cool down underway

  • Early July - Arrival of solenoid, shields

  • August – Start of mapping

    • Have to wait for MIPP Jolly Green Giant (JGG) magnet mapping currently scheduled for July

    • Long setup makes going from MICE-JGG-MICE impractical

Terry Hart, MICE CM 21, June 6, 2008


Data analysis work to do

Data Analysis Work to Do

  • Add interactive MIPP event display to existing Ziptrack package

  • Put useful FORTRAN routines in Ziptrack package

Want to make analysis of Ziptrack data easier through comfortable

interactive interface with data.

IIT graduate students Ben Freemire and Michael Wojcik to work on these.

Considerations and discussions

Considerations and Discussions

  • Solenoid cold mass position accuracy

    • Can determine cold mass position to better than 0.5 mm through external measurements

    • Want to add survey targets to accessible magnet areas; would have to be done by FNAL or RAL

  • Survey and alignment of Ziptrack system before and after field scans

    • Measure roll, pitch, and yaw

      • Moving cart along beam

      • Moving beam to horizontal and vertical limits

    • Measure offsets by moving cart in 27 point grid

  • NIKHEF Hall probe

    • Orthogonality imperfections calibrated away

    • Level is at ‘a few times 10-4’ according to Frank Filthaut

Field measurement configurations

Field Measurement Configurations

  • Map interior field

    • No shields

      • One coil on at a time

      • All coils on

    • With shields, all coils on

      • ¼ nominal current densities

      • ½ nominal current densities

      • Nominal current densities

      • 1.1 times nominal current densities

  • Map fringe field with shields

    • Ziptrack beam outside and perpendicular to solenoid

Magnetic field measuement using ziptrack system

Magnetic Field Measuement Using Ziptrack System


Mice solenoid magnetic field measurement

ZipTrack beam

- Moves up/down, in and out of page

Solenoid/shields

Smaller beam insert for solenoid

- Holds carriage with 6 positions for Hall probe

- Carriage moves along beam insert

Cross section of beam insert with carriage

- Hall probe can be placed in any of 6 locations

- Most points accessible by multiple probe locations
