2.64 Superconducting Magnets

Class Info

Covers design, manufacture, and operation issues of superconducting magnets for major engineering applications in biomedical science (MRI & NMR magnets), high-energy physics (dipole/quadrupole/detector magnets), and electric power (motor/generator/transmission cable) as well as laboratory use. Topics include electromagnetic field analyses, mechanical stress analyses, thermal stability analyses, protection circuit design, cryogenics, and experimental techniques.

This class has 2.51 as a prerequisite.

2.64 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by .

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
