Superconductors and high magnetic fields

Abstract:

This thesis describes a portfolio of work aimed at the high field applications of superconductors and can be split into four main topics:

The thermal stability of technical superconductors. This section investigates the effects of thermal perturbations on technical superconducting wire used in MRI scanner construction. The ultimate aim of this section is to predict how the architecture of the wire may affect its thermal stability. To this end a detailed finite element analysis model...
