Title The Development Of A Superconducting Undulator For The ILC Positron Source
Abstract The ILC positron source relies upon the creation of a ~200 m long superconducting helical undulator, in order to generate the huge flux of gamma photons required. The proposed period for such a device is ~10 mm, generating field strength of ~1 T. The HeLiCal collaboration in the UK has undertaken an R&D programme to investigate the feasibility of making such a device. The collaboration's work has shown that it is feasible to build a device very close to this. More recently we have built and are currently testing a full scale 4 m long prototype. This design is now part of the baseline design for the ILC. A summary of the R&D programme, the 4m prototype design, manufacturing and latest test results are presented here.
