High field HTS magnet demonstrator for space

High field HTS magnet demonstrator for space

CERN and the Italian Space Agency (ASI) signed the first implementation of their bilateral collaboration framework. The project aims to define a compact high-field magnet based on advanced high temperature superconductivity technology suitable for space applications (such as high resolution astroparticle spectrometry), and to design, build and test a demonstrator. The concept was presented during the EUCAS Conference in October 2017.
