The Low Temperature Superconductor Workshop is marking its 40th anniversary with a gathering hosted by the MagLab at the AC Hotel by Marriott Tallahassee Universities at the Capitol in Tallahassee, May 23-25.
This invitation-only event brings together magnet builders, conductor manufacturers, and university and lab groups seeking fundamental understanding of superconductors.
Participants will discuss the latest successes and challenges in implementing conductors into magnets and developing the next generation of magnet technologies.
Topics will include:
Institutional Welcome by Dr Stacey Patterson, Vice-President for Research at Florida State University
Welcome by Dr Ken Marken of the DOE-Office of High Energy Physics
Session 0: Lessons learned from the Nb-Ti Workshop
Session I: the Magnet Pull
Tentative list of speakers
Session II: Is the FCC target for Nb3Sn really achievable in production wires? Can training be meaningfully reduced by high enthalpy additions to real wires?
Talks envisaged from Bruker-EAS, Bruker-OST, HyperTech, ATI and or Materion, Fermilab, Ohio State and ASC-NHMFL-FSU
Session III: Bi-2212 is the only HTS wire that has the isotropic, multifilament, variable architecture of Nb conductors
Presentations are expected from LBL, BOST, Engi-Mat, SMS, ASC-FSU and UWEC
Session IV: REBCO Coated Conductors are the great hope of many for the new universal superconductor that could power all our magnets, enable electric aircraft and affordable fusion power and release the next accelerators from an inventory of hundreds of tons of liquid helium. How do we get to this promised land?
Speakers expected from more than a dozen organizations – do send on latest short abstracts of topics to be covered – please no repetitions of CCA talks unless there are some ideas as to how to get to the promised land and ideas for better defining what coated conductors are and how to exploit or mitigate their advantages and defects
Session V: Iron-based conductors – can they become serious?
The basis reason for interest in FBS, especially the 122 variants is their 90 T Hc2, their almost zero anisotropy and in principle cheap constituents (but beware that similar arguments were made for MgB2 15-20 years ago too).
The basic issue of GB obstruction of current is still on the table and not yet been clarified. Can we do this so as to understand whether FBS can ever become real conductors?
Kametani is at the Turkish meeting this week and will update on what was presented at the FBS session there.
Session VI: test and diagnostic facilities
Test and diagnostic capabilities are important for our whole community but become even more important for REBCO under the paradigm that REBCO magnets may need to be designed NOT to quench and burn
Test facilities and paradigms
Diagnostics – Maxime Marchevsky will keynote this session with a summary of the recent Paestum workshop that he organized
Session VII: the broader framework
A central key issue that has taken much time of MDP has been to understand, sustain and nurture the food chain that is the core of our community. A recent report to ARDAP will be summarized by Lance Cooley. We will also try for a summary of the recent Fusion Magnet Community Workshop. If you have short presentations or discussion points addressing relevant issues, please signal to me.
The registration is being provided by the FSU conference event services.
Meeting room: Cascades ballroom IV-V
The room block at the venue has been filled, but accommodations may still be possible at the AC Marriott as well as other nearby hotels by booking directly. Please check with the hotel if you need a Government rate.
