Fabrication and prototype testing of a strain-tolerant Bi-2212 cable Conference Paper uri icon


  • We have successfully manufactured and tested prototypes of a mechanically stabilized Bi2Sr2Ca1Cu2Ox (Bi-2212) 6-on-1 cable-in-conduit (CIC). The superconducting wire in the cable is reinforced with Inconel X-750 tubes to provide improved strain tolerance and greater ease of handling. We are providing a detailed description of the manufacturing process. We have wound test coils from the cable, and we are reporting on the preliminary testing of the coils.
