Radio-frequency Shield Room Installed

For optimal performance the experiment’s SQUID magnetometers must reside in a hermetically sealed Faraday cage. The aluminum Cryovessel serves this function, but temperature sensors and other devices with wiring that penetrates the Cryovessel must terminate in a connected Faraday cage (the Radio-Frequency Screen Room, or RFSR) outside the Magnetic Shield …

Experimental Building – Final Design Complete

Unusual requirements for the nEDM@SNS experimental building include a magnetic keep-out zone near the apparatus and a deep basement for access to the cryogenic interior. Final design of the building was recently completed. 3D CAD model of nEDM@SNS experimental building. Drawing of the experimental building and environs from final design …

Liquefier Recovery

A helium liquefier, associated compressors and large Helium gas storage tanks were recovered from the old Alpha-2 building at Y-12 ahead of its imminent demolition. They have a new lease on life and will supply the nEDM@SNS experiment with up to 40 liters of liquid helium per hours at a …
