Virtual-Impact Particle Sizing for Precursor Powders of Nb3Sn and Bi-2212 Superconductors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: Texas Engineering Experiment Station
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
Particle size distribution is one of the critical parameters in fabricating high-performance, fine-filament superconductors of Nb3Sn and Bi-2212 using the powder-in-tube (PIT) technique. Even a few large particles in the tubes of a multi-filament PIT billet will limit the size of the drawing or… More

Continuous Formation of Ta Barrier and Cu Sheath of Nb3Sn Subelements

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Eric Gregory
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
70576 The Nb3Sn superconductor is an enabling technology that will determine the future of high-energy hadron colliders for high energy physics research. Unfortunately, the cost of the Nb3Sn superconductor is ten times that of other superconductors. The high cost comes not from materials, but… More

Virtual Impact Sizing for Precursor Powders of Nb3Sn and Bi-2212 Superconductors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: Texas Engineering Experiment Station
Principal Investigator: Xuekui Fu, Scientist
Award Amount: $0.00
RI Contact: David Hollingworth
Abstract:
65438 Large particles must be efficiently removed from powders used to fabricate superconducting wire. The presence of even a trace amount of large particles can ruin the superconducting properties of a large batch of wire, and limit the performance of all wire made with the powder-in-tube… More

SiC/HT-9 MMC Composite Tubes for Fuel Cladding

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Don D. Smith
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
73043S03-I The cladding of fuel rods for Gen IV nuclear reactors must operate under extremely harsh conditions: high temperature (up to 1000 C in some designs), radiation damage from both fast and thermal neutrons, and attack by corrosive liquids (sodium and lead in some designs). The properties… More

Abstract:
73042S03-I Nb3Sn superconductor is a key enabling technology that will determine the feasibility of high-energy hadron colliders for high energy physics research. However, the cost of Nb3Sn superconductor is ten times higher than that of other superconductors. The high cost comes not from… More

Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
78953 In the fabrication of powder-in-tube (PIT) Nb3Sn superconductors, needed for high energy physics applications, the particle size distribution limits the final filament size to which the strand can be drawn. In previous work, a virtual impactor (VI) aerosol particle sizing process was… More

Award Amount: $328,600.00
Abstract:
The removal of all particles over a desired micron-scale size threshold from a powder sample is critical to the development of fine-filament, powder-in-tube superconducting wires, for which the final filament size is limited by the largest particles in the precursor powder filling. This project… More

Plasma Torch Synthesis of Homogeneous C-alloyed MgB2 for High-Field Applications
