When: 21 Mar 2019, 20:00 (CET)

Hosted by: Alexis

Abstract: This talk will introduce the problem of effective magnetic fields in large size superconductors for fusion applications. The effect of non-round cable geometries with different void fractions is considered. Pro and cons for magnetic fusion applications are discussed. This work was supported by the EPFL superconductivity group (Villigen, Switzerland)​.
