Abstract
In this STTR Phase I effort, Structured Materials Industries, Inc., www.structuredmaterials.com (SMI) and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) at the University at Albany - State University of New York (SUNY), will develop process and hardware technology for continuous production of YBa2Cu3Ox (YBCO) coated conductors with significantly improved current carrying capacity. Improvements of 10X or greater in current capacity are possible, compared to present state of the art YBCO coated conductors. In Phase I of this STTR project, SMI and CNSE will demonstrate feasibility of producing multilayered structures of YBCO and a barrier material such as CeO2, by MOCVD. We will demonstrate that these structures result in significantly improved current carrying capacity, as compared to state of the art single layer YBCO coated conductors. In Phase II, we will scale this technology up to continuous reel-to-reel production of high performance multilayer YBCO coated tapes.
