Validation test of the forced-flow Cooling Concept for the Superconducting Magnet of AMIT Cyclotron

Advanced Molecular Imaging Techniques cyclotron is a compact device aimed to produce radioisotopes for medical imaging. A uniform 4-T field is created by means of two NbTi coils in a Helmholtz arrangement. Both coils are embedded in a stain-less steel casing that holds the Lorentz forces.

Development of a novel concept of efficient superconducting magnet for radioisotope production Cyclotron.

Radioisotopes are nowadays extensively used in several applications, including material science, industry or nuclear medicine. In the specific case of nuclear medicine, radioisotopes play an essential role which can be classified in terms of two main categories.
