Abstract:This report presents a design optimization of a new superconducting magnet system for a liquid Argon neutrino detector. The optimization study is performed within the framework of a bachelor assignment as part of the Advanced Technology bachelor programme at the ATLAS magnet group at CERN. For the design of the superconducting magnet system, two options are investigated. A double racetrack con6guration and a uniformly wound solenoid. As a basis for the optimization study, a pre-existing Matlab based design tool named Field is used. The optimization study is performed by making use of the text based interface of Field and exists of a single optimization cycle accompanied by a parametric sweep. The result of the optimization study is a set of optimized models for both the double racetrack and the solenoid option. As a result of the performed parametric sweeps, all models have a di5erent geometry and satisfy di5erent design requirements. To be able to continue the design study, a socalled working model is selected for both con6gurations. Further analysis concerning the thermal and mechanical behaviour of both design options is performed with respect to these working models
