18 May 1988 Fabrication Of Superconducting Wires And Bulk Materials
Author Affiliations +
American Superconductor was formed to fabricate commercial quality wires and bulk materials from the new high-Tc superconducting oxides. The company is using a proprietary metal precursor approach as its primary forming method. This paper will discuss the history of wire fabrication in classic superconducting materials and the status of alternative methods of fabrication for the new higher temperature materials. It will also focus on key problems to be solved in developing a truly useful bulk superconducting material such as critical current and strength.
