A high-temperature superconducting (HTS) wire critical current database
This database comprises high temperature superconducting (HTS) wire performance data measured at the Robinson Research Institute of Victoria University of Wellington. Its principal focus is on commercially available materials, and it aims to provide the most comprehensive performance data available, enabling informed materials selection and the efficient modelling, design and construction of high temperature superconducting machines and devices.
The database is described in S. C. Wimbush and N. M. Strickland, A public database of high-temperature superconductor critical current data, IEEE Trans. Appl. Supercond. 27 (2017) 8000105. The measurement system is described in N. M. Strickland, C. Hoffmann, and S. C. Wimbush, A 1 kA-class cryogen-free critical current characterization system for superconducting coated conductors, Rev. Sci. Instrum. 85 (2014) 113907.
The database will continue to be expanded over time, and submissions of additional (commercially-available) materials for measurement and potential inclusion in the database are invited.
