COLLOQUIUM: Superconductors for Fusion for Next Ten Years

Professor David Larbalestier
Florida State University - National High Magnetic Field Laboratory

Present fusion devices requiring superconductors all use Nb-Ti or Nb3Sn. But conductors for high magnetic field use are undergoing a considerable development at present, especially devices that may be made with the high temperature cuprate superconductors, REBa2Cu3Ox, Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+x and (Bi,Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cu3O10. We at the magnet lab have used these conductors to generate magnetic fields over 35 Tesla in small insert coils and an all superconducting 32 Tesla magnet for users of the magnet lab is now in construction. I want to describe the driving paradigms for this rather successful recent development and suggest ways in which they may have application for fusion devices as well.
