Abstract

Degradation of recovery current due to the unexpected enhancement of resistivity of aluminum stabilizers has been observed in pool-boiling-type superconductors that have been developed for the helical coils of Large Helical Device. Dependence of the measured resistivity on the magnetic field suggests that this is a kind of anomalous magnetoresistivity. The Hall effect in metal-metal composites is considered to be the most plausible candidate to explain this observation. We compared our data with the calculated values based on this model and confirmed that this model explains the experimental results well.
