Abstract

The effects of Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) on the superconducting properties of (Nb, Ti)3Sn multifilamentary wires were studied. The (Nb, Ti)3Sn wires, having a bronze (Cu-13wt%Sn-0.3wt%Ti) to niobium ratio of 2.8, were manufactured by the conventional bronze method using the hot hydrostatic extrusion. After the diffusion heat treatment, the (Nb, Ti)3Sn wires were HIP treated in a high pressure argon gas atmosphere of 130 MPa in a temperature range from 600 to 750°C. The critical current measured in the transverse magnetic field of up to 23 tesla indicates that the optimum temperature of HIP treatment on (Nb, Ti)3Sn was less than 600°C.
