ADR Magnets Operating at 30-40K

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

ADR Magnets Operating at 30-40K

This program is designed to achieve high operational efficiency for superconducting ADR magnets in space, and to meet space launch requirements. The overall technical objective is to manufacture an efficient magnet using YBCO HTS tapes that can generate 3 T at 30-40 K with an operating current of 5-7 A. To meet this goal we will conduct research and development in areas of: 1) Characterization and use of 1.25 mm YBCO tape in ADR coils. 2) Fabrication of narrower YBCO tapes. 3) Development of low resistance tape-to-tape electrical joints. 4) Quench protection of YBCO ADR coils operating at 30-40 K. 5) Design and manufacturing of a 3 T, YBCO ADR magnet. 6) Testing of the 3 T magnet at 30-40 K.
