Characterization of superconducting wires in a background magnetic field B ≤ 3 T with a spatial homogeneity of 350 ppm in a sphere of diameter 300 mm (warm bore of diameter Φ = 350 mm which can accommodate a Variable Temperature Insert:4.2 K ≤ T ≤ 300 K).
Achievements, related projects
H0 was originally a prototype of double pancake winding which was built by ALSTOM and tested in the framework of the ISEULT project.
H0 allows to perform R&D studies on high critical temperature conductors and superconducting windings, via a cryogenerator (the station is currently used for characterizing MgB2 conductors).
The station could also be used for instrumentation tests under magnetic field (temperature and pressure sensor, electronic card...).
It is also planned to use the platform to test prototypes of junctions of superconductors under a field up to 3 T.
