For technological applications of high-Tc superconductors, it will be necessary to overcome the inherent problem of brittleness, to develop materials with high current carrying capacity, and to devise ways of joining superconductors with other materials. This article attempts to address these aspects by focusing on superconducting films coated on metallic wires by solidification from melt. The composite systems are expected to produce flexible wires with desirable properties. Results of some preliminary investigations are reported.
