Abstract

After fifty years as the exclusive domain of low-temperature physicists, the unique properties of superconductors are now beginning to establish their utility in a rapidly broadening variety of applications, This budding technology has attracted the attention of the news media as well as those publications aimed at the upper levels of industrial and Government management [1]. It is seldom the intention of these descriptions to cast pessimism; in some cases an extremely rapid growth rate has been-predicted for this technology.
