Superconducting Magnets for a Final Focus Upgrade of ATF2

Abstract : The Accelerator Test Facility 2 (ATF2) at KEK is a scaled version of the final focus (FF) design proposed for a future linear collider (LC). A primary ATF2 goal is to experimentally verify the FF technology needed to obtain very small, stable beam spots at an LC interaction point [1]. Initially the ATF2 FF is made using conventional (warm) quadrupole and sextupole magnets. We intend to upgrade the ATF2 FF by replacing conventional magnets with new superconducting ones that use the same technology proposed for the International Linear Collider (ILC) baseline FF magnets [2]. With this upgrade we can investigate smaller interaction point beta-functions and study superconducting magnet vibration stability in an accelerator environment. Our ATF2 magnet cryostat design incorporates features to facilitate monitoring of the cold mass movement via interferometric techniques. The status and future plans for the ATF2 superconducting magnet upgrade are reported here.
