Did you know that ..

The use of High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) and normal conducting technology for the combined function magnets is explored with comparisons to the current baseline aiming for potential savings above 10% of the synchrotron radiation power?

Learn more about the HTS FCC-ee and about the engagement of the community in projects for a more sustainable future, talk of Cristobal Garcia at the CHIPP/CHART Sustainability Workshop, details
