Stability measurements of Rutherford cables with various treatments

This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Stability measurements of Rutherford cables with various treatments ' To improve the stability of Rutherford type superconducting cables, various methods of treating cables were considered and tested. These treatments include strand coating, partial soldering, ""barber-pole"" insulation and ""porous metal"" solder filling. To study the effect of these treatments, several cables were prepared and MQE (minimum quench energy) values were measured. Coating, partial soldering or ""barber-pole insulation"" improved the relative stability for some cables. The ""porous metal"" filled cables showed higher MQE. However the results suggest that the porous metal process needs to be improved. The measured data for cables with various treatments are presented.
