A high Jc Nb3Sn conductor development program has been launched jointly by CERN, KEK, Tohoku and Tokai Universities. The scope of the program is to develop, produce in representative lengths and characterize Nb3Sn wire with enhanced characteristics. The final goal is to achieve, in representative unit lengths of material, the following development targets on the basis of magnets performance,...
In this work we pursue the development of high-Jc multifilamentary (Nb,Ti)3Sn wire containing ZrO2 APCs. Previously, 61-filament powder-in-tube (PIT) APC Nb3Sn binary conductors were demonstrated. These conductors showed very high pinning strength and high layer Jcs at 12 and 15 T (a layer Jc double the best RRP wires). However, the wires had low A15 layer conversion fractions, because the...
Fermilab is collaborating with industry and other labs and universities on superconducting (SC) wire and cable R&D, with the goal of improving key properties and providing conductor specifications and data for design and construction of SC accelerator magnets for a future very high energy pp collider. SC wire R&D focused first on optimizing the geometrical and chemical layout of Restacked-Rod...
