Abstract

A scaling study of several thousand Nb3Sn critical-current (Ic) measurements is used to derive the extrapolative scaling expression (ESE), a relation that can quickly and accurately interpolate and extrapolate full three-dimensional Ic(B,T,ε) datasets from a simultaneous fit of its parameters to limited data. The relation has the advantage of being easy to implement and offers the prospect of significant savings in sample characterization time and expense.
