Abstract:

The proposed effort covers the engineering aspects of a magnetic field source to be used in a table-top demonstrator of magnetic refrigeration. A prototype magnetic field source, based on the Halbach or "magic-ring" concept, will be designed, constructed and tested in the Phase I effort. The proposed device is based on an innovative concept that is simpler than current magic-ring configurations. This will lead to lower fabrication costs, and a simpler overall design. The Phase I effort will also produce a design for the table-top demonstration in a Phase II follow-on effort.
