MgB2 Wire When compared with permanent magnets, there are two potential advantages of MgB2. The first is the possibility of achieving magnetic field strengths of considerably more than 0.4 Tesla (up to 1.5-2.0 Tesla) with a lower initial capital equipment cost and lower life-cycle costs. Second, higher field strengths and larger zones of homogeneous magnetic field can be achieved with MgB2 superconductors than with permanent magnets. Compared with low-temperature superconductors, the life-cycle costs of MgB2 coils are lower due to the higher operating temperature and associated refrigeration cost. In the on-going effort to eliminate liquid cryogen, the temperature tolerance of MgB2 better suits it for dry operation using only a cryocooler and conduction cooling. Nb3Sn Wire Hyper Tech has developed high performance Nb3Sn wire suitable for applications in high energy physics (e.g., accelerators), research magnets and commercial applications (e.g., high field MRI systems). We produce various types of internal-tin Nb3Sn superconductors.
