Tufts University
Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
“Use of Superconductor Materials for Construction of High Energy Accelerators and Fusion Reactors”
Arthur F. Greene
New England Wire Technologies Corporation
Lisbon, New Hampshire
The speaker will give an overview of high energy accelerators worldwide that rely on the use of superconductor materials for their operation. There will be descriptions of the designs of superconducting magnets and the methods to fabricate them, also including the manufacturing of the key wire and cable components. There will also be a very brief introduction of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) to be constructed in France by seven international partners, including the U.S., and of one of the key cables to be used to construct it.
