Hi, I'm a 2nd year undergraduate student at The University of Liverpool. I'm part of a team looking to create a novel Penning trap for a project. The short run down is that my team and myself have schematics and large quantities of information on an ion trap we're trying to build. We've collected together most of the components for the vacuum chambers and have found access to a vacuum pump so they're two hurdles overcome. We've even found some funding through sponsorship and through our department. We have however come to another obstacle in that we're a bit unsure on how we are to produce the magnetics field for our trap. We've been looking heavily into the prospect of using a solenoid in order to get the uniform field necessary but are struggling to find useful information relating to small solenoids being used in vacuum to create 1 Tesla magnetic fields. We're mostly concerned about what sort of cooling system and set-up we might require to achieve this set-up. If anybody has any thoughts on this or know where we can find information on the topic it would be greatly appreciated! I understand that without the trap being described it's difficult to know what will/won't work so please if you think you might be able to help, get in contact and I can send you some more information. Thanks!
