Held in Trieste, Italy, the second annual meeting of the I.FAST project hosted passionate discussion about the progress in machine learning and in superconducting materials.
A new FCC-ee collaboration is another attempt to minimise energy consumption by replacing normal conducting sectors with high-temperature-superconducting ones, all within the same cost envelope.
Two European projects, HITRIplus and I.FAST, have obtained funding to work on different aspects of superconducting magnets for medical accelerators
35 niobium–tin superconducting coils have been manufactured as part of a fruitful collaboration with the company General Electric. They will be used in the 11 T dipoles for the HL-LHC.
Nb-Ti, MgB2 and ReBCO: a combination of conventional and novel superconductors for the powering of the HL-LHC magnets. Demo 2 and Demo 3 demonstration systems were successfully qualified at CERN in 2020.
Against the challenges of the first wave of the pandemic, from May to October 2020, CERN's MSC group organised a masterclass on the design of superconducting magnets for particle colliders.
An overview of the results from a recent study of two different types of Nb3Sn wires by HyperTech Inc. (US) and Bochvar Institute (RU) at the University of Technology and Atominstitut in Vienna.
Fermilab achieved a 14.5-tesla field strength for an accelerator steering dipole magnet, surpassing their previous record of 14.1 T.
