IT House November 16 news, according to the official website of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, recently, Shanghai light source independent research and development of China's first superconducting wave oscillator prototype completed the storage ring on the large flow strong band beam test, marking That China has mastered the key technology of superconducting wave oscillator development.
According to the introduction, superconducting wave oscillator is the key core technology of accelerator light source. Internationally, many synchronous radiation light sources and X-ray free electron laser devices are developing short-cycle superconducting oscillators.
In 2013, Shanghai Light Source organized a professional group of magnets, machinery, vacuum, low temperature and power supply to carry out experimental research on the technology of superconducting wave shockers. At the end of 2020, Shanghai Light Source completed the processing and testing of all parts of the prototype. In August 2021, the Shanghai light source completed the integrated and offline testing of the entire machine, and on November 12, the research team conducted a beam flow test.
The test results show that the insulation effect of the beam heat load at 200mA flow strength is expected, the current load of the excitation coil exceeds 350A, and the equivalent peak magnetic field is about 0.57T.
IT House learned that the report pointed out that the prototype for the next step for the development of China's hard X-ray free electron laser device and a new generation of synchronous radiation light source diffraction limit ring, as well as further improve the performance of Shanghai light source superconducting wave shocker laid a solid foundation.
