R&D of Coated Conductors in Japan

Abstract

The recent achievements of critical current densities in excess of 1MA/cm2 at 77K in YBCO films deposited over appropriate bi-axially textured buffer layers/metal substrates have stimulated interest in the potential future applications of coated conductors at liquid nitrogen temperature and high magnetic fields, which are called as the next/second generation tape conductors. Several different processes for obtaining the bi-axially textured buffer layers/metal substrates as well as thicker film deposition processes and non-vacuum processes are reviewed. This paper reviews the research goals of the project including the recent development of the related research by individual research group in Japan.
