Highlights 2018

September 2018

The DACM is involved in several high-field magnet projects, particularly for medical applications (MRI / NMR) and large test stations (LNCMI hybrid magnet). In order to generate high field, it is necessary to use new generation High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) instead of NbTi or Nb3Sn LTS. The HTS R & D studies the means of making such magnets and investigates the problems inherent in these conductors with these intense field values (G.
The first triplet of superconducting multipoles of the S3 Super Separator Spectrometer arrived at Ganil on August 29, 2018. S3 is one of the experiment rooms of the Spiral2 facility. The magnet, with a mass of 2.8 tonnes, is 1.8 m long and almost as high. This innovative type of magnet is very compact despite the number of optical functions it can generate (quadrupole, sextupole, octupole and dipole). It is the first of a series of seven to be delivered to the Ganil.

June 2018

A new project is opening today, Friday, June 15, 2018, at the LHC, the large Hadron Collider. Initiated in 2011, this project aims to bring into service by 2026 a high-luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) that will increase the number of proton-proton collisions and collect more data. France contributes significantly to this project (up to € 180 million, including payroll).
