Abstract

Field homogeneity of a superconducting magnet is a critical factor for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers. For REBCO high-temperature superconducting (HTS) coil fabrication, layer-wound is considered a better option than double-pancake (DP) winding, in terms of field homogeneity. Nonetheless, DP winding is preferred to layer-wound owing to the ease of manufacturing and the difficulty in making long REBCO tapes. However, DP winding has an inevitable crossover turn between the top and bottom layers. For magnets with an HTS insert used in NMR spectrometers, the crossover turn could be critical for the field homogeneity. In this paper, the magnetic field generated by the crossover turn is derived based on the Biot-Savart law, and the effect of crossover turns in stacked DPs on the field homogeneity of an NMR-class HTS magnet is analyzed.
