Abstract:
Here are a few thoughts on using magnetic fields to control radiation produced by an 8 GeV proton beam. Basic result is that the transverse kick $p \theta$ available within a nuclear cascade is of order $.3 B \lambda_i$ which takes a value of about 20 MeV for a 0.4 T field in iron. Since this is to be compared to a typical hadronic transverse momentum of 300 MeV in the nuclear interactions, it is clear that a rather specialized application would be the only purpose in modifying a cascade using such low fields. I will pass this along in hopes that it sparks a useful idea for someone or perhaps saves someone from further time lost.
