Kicker magnet test for High-Luminosity LHC

HL-LHC kicker magnet
A special coating (Cr2O3) has been applied to the inside of the alumina tube of an upgraded MKI magnet – this is expected to greatly reduce the pressure rise with beam. In addition, HL-LHC beam would have resulted in excessive heating of the MKI magnets.
