Parallel session D2

6th October 2022/ 14:30-16:00
Albéniz room
(floor -2)

Superconducting magnets are key components in particle accelerators and fusion energy experiments, where their primary role is to control the path and shape of beams of electrically charged particles. Progress is constantly made in the field of superconductivity and particularly the following technical areas are of interest to Big Science organisations developing future particle accelerators, colliders and fusion tokamaks: superconducting materials, superconducting RF cavities, superconducting links, magnet design and technology, cable and conductors production and test, manufacturing and testing of coils, high-temperature superconductors.


  • CERN – Luca Bottura, Group Leader, Magnets, Superconductors and Cryostats, TE Department
  • European XFEL - Sara Casalbuoni, Group Leader, Undulator Systems
  • FAIR – Dr. Christian Roux, Head of superconducting magnets, or Peter Spiller, Sub-project leader for SIS 100 (TBC)


  • Antoine DAËL - ILO for CERN. France

Big Science organisations have a particular need  of superconducting magnets, as key components in particle accelerators and fusion energy experiments.
