Shielded ADR Magnets For Space Applications, Phase I

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

An important consideration of the use of superconducting magnets in ADR applications is shielding of the other instruments in the vicinity of the superconducting magnets. For example in a telescope application the magnetic field at about 1m away from the magnet may need to be in milli-gauss range. Shielding without proper technology and optimization can add unnecessary weight to the magnet system that can amount to a few times the weight of the superconducting magnet itself. This proposal discusses various approaches in shielding of Nb3Sn ADR magnets and suggests a program to develop the capability required to achieve effective shielding schemes that provide required shielding with minimum weight, and maximum reliability.
