Our research on Nb3Sn in the SPS communications

An article in the latest issue of the Swiss Physical Society (SPS) communications (n. 63, February 2021) reports on the collaboration between CERN and the Group of Applied Superconductivity at UNIGE for the development of advanced Nb3Sn wires. The work described in the article is motivated by the need to push Nb3Sn technology towards its ultimate performance in view of achieving and exceeding the performance required for the magnets of a highest-energy hadron collider with a centre-of-mass collision energy of 100 TeV. More details can be found in the recent research paper from Florin Buta et al. (link).

This activity is part of the CHART initiative. Since 2015, CHART, which stands for “Swiss Accelerator Research & Technology”, has been bringing together the Swiss leading forces in the R&D of superconductor technology for accelerators under the auspices of the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI). This interdisciplinary collaboration involves researchers from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), the two Federal Institutes of Technology in Zurich and Lausanne, the University of Geneva and, of course, CERN.
