    A localized measurement of the RF critical field on superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavity materials is a key step to identify specific defects that produce quenches of SRF cavities. Two measurements are performed to demonstrate these capabilities with a near-field scanning probe microwave...

    Nb[sub 3]Al superconductors have shown promising performance compared to Nb[sub 3]Sn conductors when processed by the Melt-Quench/Ordering Heat Treatment (MQ-OHT) process. In this process, a precursor wire containing a fine structure of Nb and Al is ohmically heated to temperatures in the range...

    Drastic improvements of superconducting properties, T[sub c], H[sub c2] and J[sub c] have been obtained on the jelly roll Nb[sub 3]Al multifilamentary wires through the DRHQ (double rapidly-heating/quenching) process. T[sub c] and H[sub c2](4.2 K) increased up to about 18.4 K and 30 T, values...
