Abstract
For Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerators(ADR's) for space it is desirable to have very light weight, small diameter, high current density superconducting wires that can operate at temperatures in the 10-30 K range. Magnesium diboride, a light-weight superconductor wire is the ideal candidate coil material for ADRs in the 10-30 K range. During the Phase I we will determine how small of wire can be manufactured, and that coils can be made from the small diameter wires. This will lead to the development of full size ADR coils in a Phase II effort.
