Abstract

We are experimentally studying basic AC loss properties of IBAD/CVD-YBCO coated conductors with a copper layer for stabilizing, especially the temperature dependence of perpendicular field loss in alternating electromagnetic environments. We prepared two types of short specimens with and without a copper layer and measured AC losses by a saddle-shaped pickup coil in an alternating magnetic field perpendicular to the wide surfaces at liquid helium temperature. In the ranges of the amplitude up to 4 T and the frequency up to 0.2 Hz, the AC losses both of the two specimens are hardly dependent upon the frequency. The results show that hysteresis loss is a major component of the AC loss in the specimens and the effects of the copper layer can be negligible. We also measured AC losses for the specimens with the copper layer at liquid nitrogen temperature to estimate the dependence on measurement temperature. The results suggested that the AC loss vs. the amplitude of applied field can be scaled by a critical current at a zero magnetic field.
