Abstract

Superior mechanical and electromechanical properties of the coated conductor (CC) tapes made them a viable option for coil and magnet applications. In this study, investigation on the characteristics of Ic under different B, T, and ϵ conditions were conducted. Tensile load was applied using the Katagiri type test rig under different high magnetic field and low-temperature conditions wherein irreversible strain, ϵirr was determined. The I c behavior with magnetic field of both reactive co-evaporation by deposition and reaction (RCE-DR) and metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) processed CC tapes at different T and B were obtained. The critical irreversible strain limit ϵirr of Cu-stabilized REBCO CC tape increased with decreasing temperature from 65 K down to 20 K. This behavior was resulted from the increased yield strength of the CC tape due to thermal hardening effect.
