Development of superconducting strand and cable with improved properties for use in SSC (Superconducting Super Collider) magnets

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The critical current requirement for the NbTi superconductor strand was set at 2750 A/mm/sup 2/ (5 T, 4.2 K) in the SSC Conceptual Design, compared with a value of 1800 A/mm/sup 2/ which was specified for the strand used in the Tevatron dipoles. In addition, a filament diameter of 5 ..mu..m, instead of the 9 ..mu..m diameter used in the Tevatron, was chosen to reduce field distortion at injection. In order to meet the requirements for field homogeneity, the dimensional requirements for both strand and cable were also tightened. The technical solutions employed to achieve these improved properties and the ... continued below
