Title: An Octagonal Architecture for High Strength PIT Nb3Sn Conductors
Published: June 06, 2006
Abstract: Powder-in-Tube (PIT) Nb3Sn conductors have been fabricated utilizing a low-cost intermetallic Cu5Sn4 powder as the tin source. A novel octagonal PIT design that incorporates dispersion strengthened copper as well as a hexagonal PIT design were fabricated. In this paper, we compare the critical current and strain properties of the octagonal PIT conductor designs with standard hexagonal PIT conductor designs.
