Fracture Statistics of Individual NbSn Filaments
The purpose of this study was to extract the tiny Nb3Sn filaments from their component wires for testing, and therefore be able to probe the intrinsic properties of Nb3Sn.
Investigating Metallographic Sample Preparation Techniques for BiSrCaCuO[8+x]
We developed effective sample preparation techniques to understand the complex Bi-2212 wire microstructure and to efficiently correlate its electrical and mechanical behavior.
Post-Delamination Structural Investigation of YBCO Superconducting Tape
YBa2Cu3O7 (YBCO) is a rare-earth based superconductor that is fabricated as a composite tape. Its properties make it a candidate for usage in high-field magnets at cryogenic temperatures. The structure of the tape includes ...
Characterization of Mechanical Properties of BiSrCaCuO[8-x] Superconductor Through Scanning Electron Microscopy
Bi-2212 is brittle and susceptible to mechanical damage. Our research seeks to understand why this damage occurs, and how it propagates through the material.
