The positron supply for the ILC will be generated by shining a 285 kW beam of 10 MeV photons onto… More

Nb3Sn Wound Superconducting Undulators for Synchrotron Light Sources

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$1,010,000.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Xuan Peng, Dr. – 614-481-8050
Abstract:
These requirements demand that the undulators have short periods (around 1.5 cm) and high peak magnetic fields (around 1.6 tesla). For the windings of such undulators the solicitation also requests the use of new superconducting materials such as improved Nb3Sn superconductors and high temperature… More
