Large Hadron Collider will be upgraded from 8.4 tesla magnets to 11 to 13 tesla

Oxford Instruments will work with CERN for the next generation upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to high luminosity. The proposed HiLumi upgrade will enable a significant increase in the proton collision rate and extend the physics reach of the LHC. This requires the deployment of high field 11-13 Tesla magnets constructed with Nb3Sn superconducting technology.

Oxford Instruments is the world leading supplier of wire and research magnets using Nb3Sn. It will apply its deep manufacturing experience to the collaboration with CERN on the prototyping and industrialization of the HiLumi accelerator magnets, in particular the 11T dipoles essential to create the space required for new beam collimation systems.
