@KitemanSA,

Something like this:

or this?

Since there should be pretty symmetric forces (except for gravity), we might be able to use only two diametrically opposed cantilever supports per coil.

Having only two supports doesn't look so pretty with this one:

But this arrangement is tetrahedral:

Personally, I don't think any of those designs protect the legs from the fields. The electrons exit the cusps and follow the field lines around until they impact the legs.

I'm thinking more like this though if you want to keep the magnets to 6, the corners around the triangles can be much thinner and even more removed from the square plan form magnet corners. Also, the 4 legs can be much thinner too. In this way, ALL the metal (or almost all) cn be protected by magfield.

Thanks.

Isnt EMC2 using a beveled magnetic ring, I see a lot of graphics above showing tubluar rings.
I like the p-B11 resonance peak at 50 KV acceleration. In2 years we'll know.

n*kBolt*Te = B**2/(2*mu0) and B^.25 loss scaling? Or not so much? Hopefully we'll know soon...

Possibly they found the confinement so much better than expected that they decided to try operating at a higher power level?
