Abstract

The strain dependence of the critical properties of Nb3Sn superconducting strands is a major complication for critical current (I c) measurements. We report neutron diffraction measurements that have been carried out at room temperature and at 10 K in order to determine the strain state of a Nb3Sn powder-in-tube (PIT) strand mounted on a critical current measurement barrel made out of a Ti-6Al-4V alloy.
