Fabrication and application of NbTi and Nb3Sn superconductors

International Symposium Niobium 2001

Superconductors allow the lossless flow of electrical current. This results in a high potential for applications in electrical energy and magnet technology. Of the many existing superconductor materials only Nb based superconductors have been developed so far into mature products1. Technical superconductors used in magnet technology consist nearly exclusively of the alloy NbTi and the compound Nb3Sn. Design, fabrication technology, properties and application of these conductors are described. (AU)
