Abstract
DEVELOPING CONDUCTORS WITH GREATER CURRENT DENSITY AT HIGHER MAGNETIC FIELDS THAN COMMERCIAL SUPER- CONDUCTORS SUCH AS NCTI AND NB3SN IS DESIRABLE FOR ADVANCED FUSION DEVICES SUCH AS MIRROR MACHINES. THE DEVELOPMENT OF NB3AL CONDUCTORS FABRICATED USING THE POWDER PROCESS OFFERS THE POTENTIAL TO EXCEED THE SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES OF NB3SN. THE CRITICAL CURRENT FOR SAMPLES OF POWDER-PROCESS NB3AL AT 19T IS COMPARABLE TO THAT OF NB3SN AT 18T. THIS PROGRAM WILL FOCUS ON ASSESSING SUITABILITY OF THE POWDER PROCESS FOR SCALE-UP TO INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION PROCESSING. SUCCESS WILL YIELD AN ECONOMICAL CONDUCTOR OD SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE.
