Performance of Composite Copper-Superconductor Soldered Conductors
The stabilization technique of superconducting coils, which has been introduced by Laverick , Stekly , and Whetstone et al. , has been successfully applied to the practical construction of large superconducting coils. This paper touches on the concept of quasi-stable superconducting coils, the maximum allowable disturbance that can be associated with these coils, and presents information on some basic experiments using small pancake coils which are made of composite copper-superconductor soldered conductors (ribbon type). Voltage drop, heat dissipation, and temperature rise of the coils submerged in liquid helium were measured, and these experimental data are compared with theoretical predictions.
