Design, Fabrication, and Testing of an Apparatus for Mechanical Properties Characterization of Nb3Sn Superconducting Wires.

Bader, David.

Abstract: Multifilament Nb3Sn superconducting wires are of interest for building high-magnetic field superconducting magnets. The superconducting A15 phase Nb3Sn is formed after applying one or more heat treatments with a temperature above 650°C. This phase is very brittle and failure of the filaments occurs. This results in degradation of the performance characteristics of the wire and the superc... read more
