14.03.2016 | GLAD magnet moved into cave
Recently the 60 ton superconducting magnet GLAD (GSI Large Acceptance Dipole) was guided into the experimental cave R3B on air cushions.
Here, GLAD will undergo further extensive testing in order to precisely verify its specifications. Thereafter it will be completely installed and connected to the experimental setup. Its coils will be cooled down to a temperature below minus 268 degrees Celsius. The magnet will be used for experiments at the GSI facility until it is moved to the future FAIR accelerator facility.
