EDIPO Nb3Sn - Dipole

EDIPO Nb3Sn - Dipole

The ITER project requires a large dipole magnet for testing and qualifying samples of the original superconductor for the ITER coils under realistic conditions in its magnetic field.

The required field of approx. 12.5 T necessitates Nb3Sn as the superconductor; since the material, however, is very brittle, it can only be used for winding in its unreacted state.

After winding, the conductor was reacted at a temperature of about 650°C.
