New ALPHA octupole being wound at BNL
Our new octupole is being made at Brookhaven National Laboratory - here's a video that they've sent us of the work in progress.
The superconducting wire is laid down by a machine-controlled head, and bonded in place as it goes. The new octupole will be welded into the ALPHA-2 cryostat and comissioned at CERN this summer. Thanks to the BNL Superconductng Magnet Division for making this video for us.
