ATLAS Experiment CERN

Solenoid Magnet

The central ATLAS solenoid has a length of 5.3 m with a bore of 2.4 m. The conductor is a composite that consists of a flat superconducting cable located in the center of an aluminum stabaliser with rectangular cross-section. It is designed to provide a field of 2 T with a peak magnetic field of 2.6 T. The total assembly weight will be 5.7 tons.
