Abstract:

A method is presented for calculating the length to area ratio of current leads for superconducting magnets that will minimize the heat loss caused by the lead. The method does not assume that the material obeys the Weidemann-Franz Relation therefore, calculations can be made for ultra high purity metals. Sample calculations for such materials are made and it is shown that it is possible to effect a refrigeration saving over that required for W-F materials.
