Part of the International Cryogenics Monograph Series book series (ICMS)


Since high-temperature superconductors were discovered in 1986, there have been extensive research efforts to understand the nature of superconductivity in these materials and to fashion them into forms that can be used in practical applications. This chapter reviews basic aspects of superconductivity in the families of copper-oxide-based high-temperature superconductors. It discusses methods used to fabricate YBa2Cu3O6+x and ReBa2Cu3O6+x (Re = rare earth) into bulk monoliths and reviews the ongoing studies and development work to make them into coated conductors. It examines the oxide-powder-in-tube method to fabricate Agsheathed (Bi,Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cy3u3O10 wire and current applications where these wires are used.
