    We report the critical current of superconducting Nb3Sn coatings produced by electrocodeposition from molten salts and its anisotropy in transverse magnetic fields. The anisotropy is quantified by the ratio of the critical currents measured in magnetic fields parallel and normal to the coating...

    In this paper, we report the levitation force properties of a melt-processed YBCO bulk with a linear notch. With the increase of the notch length, levitation force between the YBCO bulk and magnet decreases in exponential law with zero-field cooling (ZFC) condition and while its change obeys the...

    We have examined the effects of Zr, In and nanoscale SiC addition on the field dependence of transport Jc for filamentary MgB2 superconductors at 4.2 K in magnetic field up to 14 T. Suspension spinning of commercially available MgB2, and Zr, In or nanoscale SiC powders was used to fabricate a...

    Aiming at further improvement of high-field critical current density, Jc, in the Nb3Al conductors, Si addition was attempted. To fabricate the Nb3(Al,Si) conductors, we used two times the rapid-heating and quenching (RHQ) technique. First, drawability of the Nb/Al-Si composite wire has been...

    Transformation heat treatments with short excursions (1–10 min) to 1000°C preceding the conventional 800°C/10h were applied to jelly-roll Nb-Al samples that had been rapidly heated and quenched (RHQ) in bcc phase from high temperatures. The critical current density dependence on...

    The engineering critical current density (JC) of a Nb3Sn restacked-rod-process superconducting strand is reported as a function of magnetic field (B≤28 T), applied axial strain (-0.9%≤[variant_greek_epsilon]A≤0.2%), and temperature (4.2 K≤T≤14 K). Although the...

    Electrical transport measurements were performed on single electrodeposited superconducting lead nanowires (330 nm diameter) by applying a magnetic field parallel to the wire axis. We observe a vortex penetration while the nanowire is in the dissipative state generated by a phase-slip center....

    The thickness dependence of critical current density (Jc) has been investigated in YBa2Cu3O7-x films with BaZrO3 (BZO) nanorods (YBCO/BZO) aligned along the film normal. With the presence of linear defects in the YBCO/BZO films, the thickness dependence of Jc becomes negligible at self field and...

    The magneto-elastic behavior of thin superconducting strip in perpendicular magnetic field with field-dependent critical current is studied. We calculate numerically the body force, strain, displacement, and thickness changes in the strip for the Bean model and Kim model during the field ascent...
