Title: Investigation of Precipitation and Segregation of Secondary Phase Byproducts in Intermetallic Superconducting Materials

Abstract

For broader acceptance, the next generation of superconductors for high magnetic field appli-cations will need to be both higher performance and lower cost. In this work, we contrast two super-conductors that are candidates for high field magnets; Nb 3Sn, which has a long history yet has seen renewed interest in recent years because of remarkable advances in its properties, and Fe-based superconductors that offer potentially low-costs and very high fields. TEM techniques are essential to understand how to engineer the desired micro-/nanostructure that ultimately defines the properties for these superconductors.
