Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF THE USE OF A HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING WIRE AS A SENSOR IN NONDESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION SYSTEMS. THE WIRE WILL BE TESTED FOR SENSITIVITYTO MAGNETIC FIELD FLUX AND TO INFRARED IRRADIANCE. THE WIREWILL CONSIST OF A COPPER WIRE CORE AND A CERAMIC SURFACE LAYER; THE WIRE WILL BE PREPARED USING A NEW LASER-BASED PROCESS.
