Test results of 6 T superconducting solenoid for THz radiation applications
This project is related to new spectroscopy method in little-developed THz range. The method is founded on using of a free electron laser with high spectral power radiation which can be smoothly tuned in desirable range of spectrum. The objects of research of this method are fast processes in physics, chemical and biological reactions. Uniform magnetic field of 6 T value in the research area can considerably increase possibilities of this method. The magnetic field will modulate radiation of free molecules induction on characteristic frequencies of the Zeeman splitting that gives more possibilities of identification of molecules having even weak magnetic momentum. Moreover, the use of magnetic field allows essentially increase sensitivity of this method due to almost complete separation of the weak measuring signals from powerful radiation of the laser. A superconducting solenoid was manufactured and tested for such an application. Its design and test results will be presented.
