Superconducting strands can be characterized by their minimum quench energy (MQE), i.e. the minimum heat pulse needed to trigger a quench in operation conditions (field, temperature, current), in the limit of a (temporally and spatially) /spl delta/-shaped disturbance. The sub-mm//spl mu/s range of perturbation space has only been achieved using the… CONTINUE READING
