sol·e·noid

(sol'ĕ-noyd),
A helical coil of wire energized electrically to produce a magnetic field, which induces a current in any conductor placed within or near the coil.

solenoid

(sōl′lĕ-noyd)
A coil of insulated wire in which a magnetic force is created in the long axis of the coil when an electric current flows through the wire. It may be used to activate switches.

The UCN are transferred to the trap through a neutron guide inside the solenoid at the bottom.
Maller believes that if solenoids are selected based on their published specifications, which typically only tell how they perform with rated voltage applied and with the coils at 25[degrees]C, then there is a good chance for problems unless very large safety margins were applied during the selection process.
A cost-cutting solenoid coil relies on a high-performance polyamide and thermoplastic encapsulation technology to stand up to the very demanding environment of an inert isolation valve used in laboratory, industrial equipment and instrumentation applications.
Sporlan enlisted Wabash Magnetics to provide the new solenoid coil system.
Solenoids are elementary-looking electrical devices that make a loud snap when energized and produce mechanical movement on demand.
Since solenoids, unlike military bases and weapons systems, don't have a constituency, these funds have few champions in Congress.
