Research Institution
In this Navy phase I SBIR effort, Tai-Yang Research Company (TYRC) of Delaware proposes to design, fabricate, and test a prototype high temperature superconducting (HTS) current lead using state-of-the-art second-generation YBCO coated conductor. The proposed YBCO current lead's (4 K) heat load will be over two orders of magnitude SMALLER than any existing commercial HTS current lead based on Ag-Au alloyed Bi-2223 powder-in-tube tape (PIT) or melt-cast Bi-2212 tubes. The proposed YBCO current lead will be compact, flexible, and mechanically robust making it an ideal choice for military applications operating in harsh environments.
