The use of superconducting magnets in ECR ion sources has the potential for large power savings compared with resistive magnets. High temperature superconductors (HTS) offer further advantages including compactness, efficiency, and a simplification of the overall system. Space Cryomagnetics Ltd has designed and manufactured a pair of HTS magnets for an ion source for Pantechnik. In this paper we describe the design, manufacture, and test results of these magnets.
