Prior to installation: mapping by NMR
Each magnet must usually be mapped prior to installation. As with an optical system, the precise characterization of each element is critical to achieving the specified beam performance. For magnets with relatively homogeneous fields, the precision, long-term stability and industrial robustness of Metrolab NMR magnetometers are unequalled by any other magnetometer.
Science – Accelerator Operators
Mapping magnets prior to installation, calibrating reference magnets for a variety of measurement techniques, real-time control of beam bending magnets, integrating voltage measurement to compute a flux: Metrolab systems support accelerators operator in their daily and most advanced tasks.
After installation: beam tuning made reproducible
Real-time control of the main bending magnets with an NMR magnetometer minimizes tedious and expensive beam tuning. Since NMR provides an absolute and perfectly stable reference, operators can simply “set and forget” the magnet power supplies.
Built for physicists, by physicists
Space is at a premium in the beamline or reference magnet, so Metrolab has developed a range of miniature probes and gradient compensation coils that allow probes to be squeezed into almost any installation. Decades of testing and use in these high-radiation environments allow us to build radiation-hard probes and advise you how to get years – or decades – of trouble-fee use in hard-to-reach placements.
Multiplexers and probe cables up to 100m long allow a single magnetometer to control hundreds of probes, and multiple computer interfaces allow the magnetometer system to be easily integrated with the beam control software. Complete configurability allows NMR to be effectively used even in challenging applications, such as rapid field ramps.
