Abstract

In the present work an experimental apparatus for the production of Nb3Sn superconducting ribbon is described. The fabrication method for these ribbons takes advantage of the diffusion process of tin into niobium. We give also some details of the technique by which the superconducting properties of Nb3Sn have been tested. A number of preliminary experimental results are discussed with the purpose of pointing out the main fabrication parameters which influence the superconducting properties. Finally future developments of this research program are outlined.
