|Title:||Development of a multifilament PIT V3Ga conductor for fusion applications|
|Published:||June 12, 2011|
|Abstract:||Previous studies on V3Ga assert its suitability for use in proposed fusion reactors. V3Ga may outperform Nb3Sn in a fusion reactor environment based on its relatively flat critical-current profile in the 15 T- 20 T range, resilience to applied strain, and reduced risk of induced radioactivity. A multifilament powder-in-tube V3Ga conductor was designed, fabricated and tested with a focus on evaluating wire drawing difficulties, heat-treatment optimization, and overall feasibility of the concept.|
