Abstract

Highly stable magnets have operated successfully during the past year using large amounts of well-cooled copper surrounding a heat-treated superconductor [1,2]. These magnets will be favored for many low-field high-volume applications. Predictions of coil performance on the basis of short sample tests are also being attempted [1,3], but such prediction techniques are not yet adequate for every condition [2].
