Abstract:

The Air Force is currently pursuing the development of directed weapons using high frequency gyrotrons. Present systems use coils made with niobium titanium superconducting wire operating at 4 K with a cryocooler. Light weight magnesium diboride superconductor wire offers the potential of the required magnetic field but will operate at higher temperature of 10-25 K, and be a much lighter weight superconductor. Thus there is the potential to reduce the size and weight of the gyrotron magnet and cryocooler for airborne applications. This SBIR Phase I will demonstrate a sub-size solenoid gyrotron magnet with magnesium diboride superconducting wire, and determine what weight and size reductions could be made for a full size magnesium diboride gryotron magnet and cryocooler.
