    We made variable-temperature critical-current (Ic) measurements on a commercial multifilamentary Nb-Ti wire for temperatures (T) from 4 to 9 K and magnetic fields (H) from 0 to 11.5 T using transport current. The measurements cover the whole range of critical currents from less than 0.1 A to...

    Two wind-and-react compatible variants for the electrical insulation of Rutherford cables by a sol-gel route have been investigated. The first variant involves the direct application of a sol-gel coating of SnO2-ZrO2 to the surface of the strands in the cable, whereas the second is an indirect...
