Institute for Beam Physics and Technology (IBPT)

LASMagLab

LASMagLab is located at Campus South of KIT. The installation of a high-end magnetic measuring bench for normal-conducting and permanent magnet-based accelerator magnets at LAS enables a detailed characterization of the FLUTE and LWFA beam transport magnets.

The setup integrates different magnetic measurement techniques as 3D hall probe scans, stretched-wire and rotating-coil field integral measurements. The hardware experiment control for the hall probe scan and the stretched-wire technique have been implemented in the first step and applied to characterizing the magnets for FLUTE as well as the in-house built magnets for the LWFA beam transport.

A new circular scan technique for longitudinally resolved magnetic multipole mapping was developed which provides an excellent real data basis for efficient particle tracking studies.
