AB - The R&D of the baseline positron source target for ILC is still ongoing after TDR due to the uncertainty of rotating vacuum seal and water cooling system of the fast spinning target wheel. Different institutes around the globe have proposed different approaches to tackle this issue. A spinning target wheel system with sliding contact cooling has been proposed by ANL. The proposed system eliminated the needs of rotating vacuum seal by using magnetic torque coupler to drive the solid spinning wheel target. The energy deposited from positron production process is taken away via cooling pads sliding against the spinning wheel. A full size test wheel has been built and some initial tests have been done with promising outcomes. Results of these tests are presented in this paper along with a plan for developing a prototype.
