  To suppress any background events coming from the inter-bunch proton interactions during the muon transport and decay window for the Mu2e experiment, a beam extinction scheme based on two dipoles running at ~300 kHz and 5.1 MHz is considered. The effective field of these magnets is synchronized to the proton bunch spacing in such a way that the bunches are transported at the sinus nodes. Two types Ni-Zn ferrites are considered for these dipoles. Ferrites, their characteristics and ferrites selection is herein discussed through measurements performed under conditions close to operational. The excitation system and the measurement of some characteristics of the magnetic field and field shape and measurement mechanism are also presented.
