The proposed European Space Agency (ESA) XEUS mission will use an adiabatic demagnetization refrigeration (ADR) system to cool X-ray detectors to a temperature of less than 0.1 K. The superconducting magnet for the flight standard prototype is currently under construction by Space Cryomagnetics Ltd of Culham, England. The magnet is subject to tight constraints on its mass, stray field, and power consumption. This paper describes the design, manufacture and test of the magnet.
