JLab QW Air core quad
New Wien quadrupoles have been designed to operate at higher 200 kV energy but also with improved magnetic and mechanical design.
- These quads are used to compensate the dipole focusing of the Wien filters.
- There is one installed on the 6-way cross upstream/downstream of each Wien filter.
- They were designed to fit on top of existing 6-way viewer cross (1.5" pipe w/ 2-3/4" flanges).
- In order to maximize the field strength they were designed w/ as small an ID as possible 2-3/4". However, this means they're captured by the flanges which are welded on after the coils are assembled. We'd love to eliminate this, to have a quad coil that would pass over the 2-3/4" flange.
- Their length is about 4.9", the length of the 6-way cross. They could be longer, however, the 6-way cross abuts an 8" zero-reducer flange on the Wien filter, so a longer coil could not be perfectly symmetric on the 6-way cross. But, that's OK. A great way to recover field strength, I guess.
- Pre-existing drawings
- Assembly drawing media:ACC2004000-1035 - QW QUAD-CROSS ASSEMBLY.pdf
- Coil drawing media:QW_magnet.pdf
- QW info
- Present operating limit is 3A
- Field measurements may exist, need to look
- Jay should have a model of the quads, a good starting place, here's info from him:

- What to consider in a new design?
- Larger ID air-core quad that could fit over 2-3/4" flange
- Longer quad to provide more field strength (required values under study; appears we need at least 33% increase over existing QW @ 3A)
- Quads have to be bakeable to 250C; as they're still captured when vacuum assembly made-up before beam line bake out
- Operate w/ <10 A idea, so can use existing trim cards (like those presently used)
