 Elastic anisotropy in multifilament Nb3Sn superconducting wires / Scheuerlein, C ; Fedelich, B ; Alknes, P ; Arnau, G ; Bjoerstad, R ; Bordini, B The elastic anisotropy caused by the texture in the Nb3Sn filaments of PIT and RRP wires has been calculated by averaging the estimates of Voigt and Reuss, using published Nb3Sn single crystal elastic constants and the Nb3Sn grain orientation distribution determined in both wire types by Electron Backscatter Diffraction. At ambient temperature the calculated Nb3Sn E-moduli in axial direction in the PIT and the RRP wire are 130 GPa and 140 GPa, respectively. [...] CERN-ACC-2015-0022.- Geneva : CERN, 2015 - 5 p.

 Targets for R&D on Nb3Sn conductor for High Energy Physics / Ballarino, A (CERN) ; Bottura, L (CERN) High Energy Physics has been consistently pushing the performance of technical superconductors, for the benefit of high field magnet technology. So far the workhorse for particle accelerators has been Nb-Ti, but the practical performance limit has been attained with the LHC. [...] CERN-ACC-2015-0021.- Geneva : CERN, 2015 - 6 p.

 Coupling Current and Hysteresis Losses of Bi2212 Round Wires with Twisted Filaments / Yang, I (-) ; Pelegrin, J (-) ; Young, EA (-) ; Falorio, I (-) ; Ballarino, A (CERN) ; Bottura, L (CERN) ; Miao, H (-) ; Huang, Y (-) AC loss measurements have been carried out on Bi2212 round wires of different twist pitches. With systematical variation of sample temperature (5 K – 70 K) and ac field amplitude (≤0.2 T) as well as frequency (20 Hz – 2 kHz), this work shows (a) the full coupling of the non-twisted wire, (b) the uncoupling of sub-wires by twisting at moderate pitch up to 12 mm, (c) a relatively short time constant of milliseconds for the coupling current due to a high transverse resistivity, and (d) an effective (de)coupling diameter of 0.4mm about 1.6x of sub-wire bundles.
