Abstract
High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) wires remain too fragile and expensive for widespread commercial implementation. There exists a great opportunity to improve upon their many unique properties. Proposed is a process for the fabrication of durable,inexpensive, ultra lightweight, high-performance HTS wires using novel materials. If successful, this new process will have a great economic impact on both military and commercial electric power storage, supply, and generation. In particular, thistechnology will have a distinct advantage in space-based applications, where weight and size restrictions are at a premium. HTS wires and cables, magnets, transformers, generators, motors, Magnetic Energy Storage (SMES), plasma confinement (e.g. nuclearfusion), magnetic levitation, magnetohydrodynamics, pulsed weapons, satellites, spacecraft
