Towards an FCC-hh Detector Magnet System

The Future Circular Collider (FCC) study is well on its way, and will culminate in the publication of the Conceptual Design Report (CDR) early 2019. The most ambitious proposed future machine is a hadron-hadron accelerator (FCC-hh) of 100 km in…

Design of Twin Solenoid & Dipoles Detector Magnet System for the Future Circular Collider

The Future Circular Collider study for hadron-hadron collisions/collider (FCC-hh) foresees a collision energy of 100 TeV, which is about 7 times higher than the LHC. For the detectors this means that in order to determine the properties of the…
