AC Losses and Magnet Research

  • Herman H. J. ten Kate
Part of the An International Cryogenic Materials Conference Publication book series (ACRE, volume 40)


The main issues in the research on ac losses in practical superconductors and the developments of the last decade are reviewed. Moreover the impact of the knowledge on the development of superconducting magnet systems as for tokamaks and particle accelerators is discussed.
