Superconducting composite materials1 became of technological interest because they combine the excellent performance of brittle A15 superconductors with the good mechanical properties of ductile copper. Commercially they are produced by utilizing the bronze technique and are available as multicore wires, where superconducting filaments are embedded in a mechanically and electrically stabilizing copper or copper-bronze matrix.
