How do I put a circle around an operator?

Is there a symbol for a circled intersection sign? or an alternative way to render something like in the image below? Something like \oplus for the plus sign. I need to use this symbol inside a math environment as a sub index.

The result I am expecting is something like this: enter image description here

But with this symbol enter image description here instead.

Ther is certainly a duplicate/related of this question which I can't find right now. For the time being I am posting this tikz solution.

%% Code borrowed from Altermundus
\newcommand{\ointersection}[1]{\tikz[baseline=(X.base), inner sep=0, outer sep=0]\node[draw,circle] (X) {$#1\cap$};}

\[m^{\Omega}_{i\myointersection j}\left(H\right)\]

enter image description here

Thanks for the answer. Sadly, it doesn't render very pretty when used as a subindex... it is to big. – Felipe Aguirre Aug 20 '12 at 16:13
@FelipeAguirre: This is not designed for a sub index. The duplicate I mentioned, (If you can find it) can be used for such things. – Harish Kumar Aug 20 '12 at 16:19
Can you please give me some clues or keywords to search for the other question? – Felipe Aguirre Aug 20 '12 at 16:26
