Contract: FA8650-05-M-2502
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

In this SBIR Phase I effort, Structured Materials Industries, Inc., (SMI) will develop process and hardware technology for continuous production of YBa2Cu3Ox (YBCO) coated conductors with a nano-engineered array of non-superconducting particles. These non-superconducting precipitates will act as highly effective flux pinning centers, and enable superconducting tapes with enhanced critical current in the presence of magnetic fields. The enhanced YBCO coated conductors will enable superconducting components for compact, light-weight, AC power systems for airborne weapons systems, as well as a variety of other military and commercial power applications.
