Strain effects on critical current densities have been examined for conductors containing nearly stoichiometric Nb3Al filaments with fine grains. The Nb3Al phase in these multifilamentary conductors are prepared by phase transformation from supersaturated Nb(Al) bcc solid solution and show high-field critical current densities much larger than those for conventionally prepared Nb3Al conductors, where the Nb3Al phase is known to be off-stoichiometric. The degradation of critical current densities with −0.7% intrinsic strain is ca. 20% at 12 T, comparable with those for conventional Nb3Al conductors of high strain tolerance.
