Ink for the production of superconducting flexible tapes

New YBCO precursor solution suitable for TLAG-CSD growth of superconducting films.


Our researchers have developed a new technique to produce superconducting tapes (Coated Conductors, CCs), the Transient Liquid Assisted Growth-Chemical Solution Deposition (TLAG-CSD). This technique is 100 fold faster than currently used techniques. A key point of the technnique is the production of the solution ink that will create the superconducting layer in the CCs.

We present a novel class of environmentally friendly solutions and colloidal solutions with higher stability. The use ot these solutions increases the structural homogeneity of the superconducting film and their performance.
