This comprehensive volume is a good summary of the latest developments in high-temperature superconductor (HTS) research and an excellent resource for researchers and managers working in this field. The book is divided into three chapters: coated conductors; BSCCO-based conductors, MgB2 , and other HTS materials; and control of microstructure. Papers include topics such as long-length flexible wires and tapes, melt-textured YBCO materials, processing of HTS materials, the current status and potential for YBCO-based coated conductors, BSCCO-based conductors, and MgB2 based wires.For most large-scale bulk applications of HTS, long-length flexible wires that can carry a large amount of supercur- rent are required. ... Substrate fabrication techniques that have received considerable attention include IBAD (ion-beam- assisted deposition), RABiTS (rolling assisted ... grain boundaries, and phase diagrams is still needed for the development of materials in both bulka#39; and wire/ tape form.
