Magnetic Field Finite-Element Calculations for the Upper Cryostat S. Balascuta, R. Alarcon Arizona State University B. Plaster, B. Filippone, R. Schmid Caltech The nEDM Collaboration 11/02/2007
Design Considerations 1.The magnetic field uniformity inside the collection volume has to be 5 10 -4. 2. 3 He spin relaxation time has to be bigger than 10000 seconds inside the collection volume. The loading and transfer time of 3 He from the ABS source to the collection volume is less than 2000 seconds. 3. The loss in the polarization of 3 He from ABS source to measurement cells can be minimized if the field changes adiabatically in any point along the 3 He path.
The location of the 3 He magnet and collection volume inside the upper cryostat
The geometry of the coils and of the shield inside the upper cryostat. 24 cos( ) coils (R=20 cm, L=134 cm) Transport solenoid (r=5 cm, L=80 cm) Magnetic shield R=21 cm, L=136 cm, 62 mils thick.

The magnetic field distribution inside 24 coils (K) placed inside the shield with two gaps (12 cm wide and 64 cm long) with and without the transport solenoid. Shield: Metglas, 62 mils thick, R=21 cm, L=136 cm long, with two gaps 12 cm wide. Transport solenoid: 80 cm long, center at X c =51.19, Y c =0, Z c =47.73 cm

N=24 + M=8 coils with the same radius (20cm) and length (134 cm) inside shield (R=21 cm, 136 cm long) with two gaps (12 cm wide, 60.6 cm long) X Y K 12 cm 3 He N=24 coils with current I 1 =14.7 mA. M=8 coils with current I 8 ( I 2 =I 8 +I 1 ) Transport solenoid (80 cm long, R= 5 cm), with a current I s =45.3 mA. For the N=24 (+M=8) coils, the optimum K= -0.03 with I 2 =I 1 +I 8 =40 mA.

Conclusions For the upper cryostat we have considered a system of N=24 coils (with current I 1 ) and M=8 coils (with current I 2 ) coils ( with radius R=20 cm and length L=134 cm). The M=8 coils overlap some of the N=24 coils. The magnetic shield (R=21 cm, L=136 cm) has two gaps (12 cm wide, and 60.6 cm long). In the presence of the transport solenoid (with a current 45.3 mA) the field inside the collection volume is asymmetric along OX and OZ. To eliminate the asymmetry along the OZ axis, the length of the two gaps is decreased to 60.6 cm and the Z coordinate of their center is moved to +2 cm. For the optimum currents I 8 =25 mA and I 1 =14.7 mA through the M=8 coils and N=24 coils (with K=-0.03) the relaxation times T 1 and T 2 are bigger than 5·10 4 seconds (if the temperature in the collection volume is T<0.5 K).
