Experimental Studies on the Current-Carrying Capacity of Niobium-Zirconium Wires under Conditions of Fixed and Swept Magnetic Field

  • C. Laverick
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 9)


Experimental studies have been carried out with the object of obtaining information on the difference between the current-carrying capacity of short lengths of NbZr wire in a magnetic field and the current-carrying capacity of long lengths of NbZr wire In coils, and of obtaining Information on coil design. Specimens of NbZr wire, which have either been copper-coated, thermally insulated, or left with no coating have been tested for current-carrying capacity in the superconducting state under conditions of fixed and swept magnetic field.
