A high energy magnet made out of 8 COLOSSI:
A magnet with pole shoes and yoke made of iron.
The 8 COLOSSUS magnets (Q-40-40-20-N
) can be seen under the holding frame made of aluminium.
In a 1,5 mm high slot and an area of 1 cm2
there is a field of 3,2 Tesla.
Measuring this field was not easy because there are only few probes on the market that are thin enough and can still measure such a strong field at room temperature.
That's why we build the probe ourselves and calibrated it with a calibration magnet.
This magnet is now used for the testing of particle physics detecting components.
