  author={In-Tsang Lin and H. C. Yang and Jyh-Horng Chen},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity},
In this paper, the Ansoft high-frequency structure simulation (HFSS) was adapted to investigate the unloaded quality-factor value of the radio-frequency (RF) receiving resonator. This paper focused on the materials aspects, and a comparison between electromagnetic stimulations and measurement was conducted. A 40 mm in diameter Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu3Ox (Bi-2223) tape high-Tc superconducting RF resonator in 3 T was stimulated and built. The simulation models were established according to the experimental… CONTINUE READING
