A high-field superconducting magnet can provide both high-magnetic fields and large-field gradients, which can be used as a special environment for research or practical applications in materials processing, life science studies, physical and chemical reactions, etc. To make full use of a superconducting magnet, shared instruments (the operating platform, sample holders, temperature controller, and observation system) must be prepared as prerequisites. This paper introduces the design of a set of sample holders and a temperature controller in detail with an emphasis on validating the performance of the force and temperature sensors in the high-magnetic field.

    We present the design of a zero-crossing Zeeman slower for 85Rb using rings of flexible permanent magnets. The design is inexpensive, requires no power or cooling, and can be easily attached and removed for vacuum maintenance. We show theoretically that such a design can reproduce a magnetic...

    We describe a sensitive torque detector, based on a silicon single-crystal double-paddle oscillator (DPO). The high Q-factor (∼105 at room temperature and in vacuum) makes DPOs well suited for the detection of weak forces. The limiting sensitivity of a sensor is given by Brownian (thermal)...

    An ultrafast compact classical Mott detector is described. The efficiency of the polarimeter is [variant_greek_epsilon]≈6×10-4 and the maximum counting rate ∼2000 kcps. The Mott polarimeter employs photomultipliers with scintillators as electron energy sensitive detectors with low...
