In recent years, great effort has been focused on the development of long High-Tc wires or tapes for possible use for electric power and high field magnet applications. The (Bi, Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cu3O10 (Bi-2223 phase) is one of the most favourable High-Tc oxide compounds for fabrication of high critical current density superconductors. Among various methods to produce metal/superconductor composites, the powder-in-tube technique has proved to be the most promising route for the production of superconducting wires and tapes.l–4
