Abstract: Two world-first High-Tc Superconducting (HTS) beamline magnets have been designed, manufactured and commissioned for synchrotron and neutron research facilities. One, for the Hahn-Meitner Institut, is for use with their high-resolution diffraction and resonant magnetic scattering instrument MAGS at the Berlin electron synchrotron facility BESSY. The key features of this 5 tesla split-pair magnet include field performance within a given confined geometry, and low weight. Mounting in a 6-circle goniometer and employing conduction-cooled HTS coils, it operates through 90 degrees of rotation with respect to the beamline axis and scattering plane. The neutron beamline magnet is also a 5 tesla split pair, designed for both neutron reflectometry and small-angle neutron scattering research at the new OPAL neutron facility of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation. This much larger magnet offers wide neutron beam accessibility angles in both axial and transverse directions, large (50 mm) sample capability, and mounts on tilt stages operating in two axes. Both magnets use pulse-tube refrigeration for the HTS coils, which have been constructed from high performance BSCCO wire, and both are compatible with separate commercial cryofurnaces providing sample temperatures from 1.5 K (MAGS) or 4 K (OPAL) to over 600 K. © 2009, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
