• ### Full-Chip Thermal Simulation of Superconductor Transition-Edge Sensor Circuits

Publication Year: 2018, Article Sequence Number: 2100111
| | PDF (1323 KB) | HTML

In order to gain a better understanding of heat conduction in superconductor transition-edge sensor (TES) circuits and its interplay with their electrical behavior, we develop methods and techniques for full-chip thermal simulation of TES circuits. Instead of using a finite difference or finite element approach, we solve for the Green function of substrate temperature distribution for a point heat... View full abstract»

• ### Comparison of Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detectors Made of NbTiN and NbN Thin Films

Publication Year: 2018, Article Sequence Number: 2200106
| | PDF (715 KB) | HTML

We fabricated superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) made of NbTiN and NbN thin films in the same fabrication batch. Various parameters, such as critical temperature, resistivity, switching current, and kinetic inductance, were compared between the two types of SNSPDs. These data indicate that NbTiN SNSPD surpasses NbN SNSPD in many aspects, including a shorter recovery time due... View full abstract»

• ### Laminated NbTi-on-Kapton Microstrip Cables for Flexible Sub-Kelvin RF Electronics

Publication Year: 2018, Article Sequence Number: 2500105
| | PDF (1009 KB) | HTML

Large arrays of superconducting devices such as microwave kinetic inductance detectors require high density interconnects from higher temperatures with minimal heat load, low loss, and negligible crosstalk capable of carrying large and overlapping bandwidth signals. We report the fabrication of superconducting 53 wt% Nb-47 wt% Ti (Nb-47Ti) microstrip transmission lines laminated onto flexible poly... View full abstract»

• ### Study of Induced Eddy Current Effects on Field Homogeneity for Fast Ramped Bending Magnets

Publication Year: 2018, Article Sequence Number: 4900207
| | PDF (847 KB) | HTML

An investigation of induced eddy current effects on the field homogeneity in fast ramped bending magnets was presented in this paper. The transverse field homogeneity and integral field homogeneity were calculated based on two-dimensional/three-dimensional finite-element analysis. The results showed that the transverse field homogeneity and integral field homogeneity were less than 0.05% after the... View full abstract»

• ### Feasibility Study of the Impregnation of a No-Insulation HTS Coil Using Solder

Publication Year: 2018, Article Sequence Number: 5200505
| | PDF (584 KB) | HTML

This paper reports the feasibility of the impregnation of no-insulation (NI) high-temperature superconducting (HTS) coils using solder. NI coils are widely studied and used in many situations. To utilize an HTS coil under high mechanical loads such as field coils for rotating machines, the HTS tapes must be stabilized mechanically. Epoxy impregnation is a common method to protect the HTS field fro... View full abstract»

• ### A Novel Cryogenic System Suitable for 10 MW Superconducting Wind Generators

Publication Year: 2018, Article Sequence Number: 5200905
| | PDF (1631 KB) | HTML

For the cryogenic system of large capacity superconducting motors, a rotary joint (RJ) is usually installed to translate the fluid coolant from the static reservoir to the rotary cryostat in the superconducting motor. However, the sealing performance and heat generation and heat load are still not solved, essentially. In this paper, based on the characteristics of the large capacity wind generator...

• ### Direct-Current Vacuum Circuit Breaker With Superconducting Fault-Current Limiter

Publication Year: 2018, Article Sequence Number: 5600108
| | PDF (904 KB) | HTML

The objective of this paper is to propose a dc current interruption technology for railway dc traction systems, consisting of a dc vacuum circuit breaker with a superconducting fault-current limiter (SFCL). To this end, a 1.5-kV dc circuit breaker prototype is designed, involving a dc vacuum circuit breaker and a resistive-type SFCL serially connected. The dc vacuum circuit breaker is developed wi...

• ### Assembly and Soldering Procedure of Nonstabilized YBCO Coils for 1000 A SFCL

Publication Year: 2018, Article Sequence Number: 5600204
| | PDF (385 KB) | HTML

The superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) is the superconducting device for electrical applications closest to overcome the commercialization threshold. Device and operational costs due to resistive electrical connections and ac losses can be minimized by reducing superconducting tape length and power dissipation in the cryostat. Pursuing this goal, we realized anti-inductive coils of YBCO ... View full abstract»

• ### A Mathematical Model for the Characterization of Superconducting Level Sensors

Publication Year: 2018, Article Sequence Number: 9000111
| | PDF (819 KB) | HTML

An automated level control in cryogenic systems requires a precise and continuous level measurement. If properly characterized, superconducting level sensors are a viable option for the same. The operation of a superconducting level sensor is based on the difference in the heat transfer from the sensor wire to the liquid and the gaseous phases of the cryogen. The higher heat transfer in the liquid... View full abstract»
