Critical-Current Measurements on an ITER Nb<formula formulatype="inline"><tex>$_{3}$</tex></formula>Sn Strand: Effect of Axial Tensile Strain


The dependence of transport critical current I<sub>c</sub> on axial tensile strain was measured for a developmental Nb<sub>3</sub>Sn multifilamentary strand as a function of magnetic field B between 12 T and 16 T, at the temperature of 4 K. This conductor was from the first stage of strand pre-production for the central solenoid of the International… (More)
