Accelerator Magnet Technology Division

AMTD has been involved in design, development and characterization of magnets related to various particle accelerators at Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology (RRCAT). A large number of various magnets have been successfully designed, developed indigenously and installed for various applications that include: 700 MeV Booster Synchrotron, 450 MeV Indus-1 & 2.5 GeV Indus-2 storage rings and other projects of RRCAT (FEL, ARPF facilities, LEBT for Proton Linac etc.) and for other research laboratories (BARC, Mumbai & CERN, Swiss) as per the stringent magnet specifications. AMTD has been successfully developed requisite in-house technical infrastructure for various AMTD labs and acquired considerable expertise in the field of conventional electromagnets & pulsed magnets for particle accelerators.

The labs working under AMTD are:
