Abstract

Recently proposed synchrotrons, SF-SPS (Super-Ferric SPS) at CERN and DSF-MR (Dual Super-Ferric Main Ring) at Fermilab, would operate with a 0.5 Hz cycle (or 2 second time period) while accelerating protons to 480 GeV. We examine possibilities of superconducting magnet technology that would allow for an accelerator quality magnetic field sweep of 2 T/s. For superconducting magnets the AC losses in the coil compromise magnetic field quality and require high level of cryogenic cooling power. We outline a novel magnet technology based on HTS superconductors that may allow reduction of AC losses in the coil possibly up to an order of magnitude as compared to similar applications with LTS type conductors.
