Characterization of Nb3Sn Superconducting Strands under Wide Range Pure-Bending Strain.

Mallon, Philip.

Abstract: Nb3Sn superconducting wire is sensitive to strain, which degrades electromagnetic performance. The substantial operation degradations found during ITER model coil tests of high current Cable-in-Conduit Conductors have given rise to research aimed at understanding the mechanisms behind the degradations due to bending, transverse, and axial strains. The degradation of a single Nb3Sn strand... read more
