Design and fabrication of a device to characterize the electromechanical behavior of Superconducting Nb3Sn 3-strand cables under transverse load.

Derman, Konstantin.

Abstract: Nb3Sn superconducting wire is currently in use in the Toroidal Field (TF) and Central Solenoid (CS) coils of the ITER fusion machine because of its ability to remain in the superconducting state at the high magnetic fields required to confine a plasma. However, this conductor is sensitive to strain, which degrades its electromagnetic performance. In the past 15 years, a lot of research h... read more
