mov Scientific Research Institute of Electrophysical Apparatus, St.petersburg, Russia) New compact cyclotron CC-18/9 designed and manufactured in NIIEFA

In the paper is presented a brief description of a cyclotron providing the acceleration of negative hydrogen and deuterium ions to energies of 18 and 9 MeV respectively. The cyclotron is in- tended to produce short-lived and ultra short-lived radio isotopes. The beam is extracted by charge-exchange of ions by stripping foils. The specific feature of the machine is location of the resonance system inside the vacuum chamber of a shielding-type magnet as well as the vertical position of the median plate of the magnet. The cyclotron has a beamline to transport the beam to remote targets. Two such machines have been manufactured and put into operation: one cyclo- tron is operated in the PET center of Turku, Finland and the other is functioning in the medical center in Pesochnaya in St.Petersburg, Russia

Design and manufacture of the superconducting bus-bars for the LHC main magnets

The main magnets of the LHC are series-connected electrically in different powering circuits by means of superconducting bus-bars carrying a maximum current of 14 kA. These superconduct- ing bus-bars consist of a superconducting cable thermally and electrically coupled to a copper profile all along the length. The function of the copper profile is essentially to provide an alterna- tive path for the current in case the superconducting cable loses its superconducting state and re- turns to normal state because of a transient disturbance or of a normal zone propagation coming from the neighboring magnets. When a superconducting bus-bar quenches to normal state its temperature must always stays below a safe value of about 100 degrees C while the copper is conducting. When a resistive transition is detected, the protection system triggers the ramping down of the current from 14000 kA to 0. The ramp rate must not exceed a maximum value to avoid the transition of magnets series-connected in the circuit. This paper concerns the design and the manufacture of high current superconducting bus-bars needed to interconnect the mag- netic elements of the main dipoles, the main quadrupoles of the arcs and of the dispersion sup- pressors of the LHC.
