Abstract
The objective of this SBIR program is to develop a production system for producing kilometer or more lengths of superconducting tapes. The tapes are based on superconducting YBa2Cu3Ox thin films, deposited by MOCVD, onto buffer coated metal tapes.Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) is working collaboratively with a leading US superconducting tape manufacturer in this effort (who has and continues to provide significant matching cash and in-kind funds to the program) as well as severalexisting and potential venders and consultants. SMI is developing the deposition hardware and our partner is developing the superconducting tapes. This project is needed to optimize the production of the tapes and to transfer this technology thereafterinto production. We will advance the state of the art significantly and insure US competitiveness to offshore competitors and thus maintain a leadership position in the US and international marketplaces. Phase III will consist of tape coating tool sales,tape sales and sale of tape enabled products.
