Performance measurements of superconducting current leads with low helium boil-off rates

Abstract

A performance-measurement facility for current leads has been developed as a part of Argonne National Laboratory's program to develop applications for high-temperature superconductors. The facility measures the rate of helium vapor boil-off due to current-lead heat input to liquid helium and the pressure drop across a current lead for a pair of leads… (More)
