Experimental Hall B - CLAS Superconducting Magnets

Experimental Hall B - CLAS Superconducting Magnets

Here is a better look at Hall B's six superconducting magnets. The magnets are cooled with Liquid Helium and are used to bend the paths of the particles that come flying out of the target when the beams hits it. Drift chambers will be installed between the magnets to measure the particles' paths.
