Paper Abstract

A review of the basic technical issues relevant to the effective utilization of high temperature superconductivity in electronic device and component applications is presented. Many of the key issues pertain to material science; in this discourse, however, other more fundamental consequences of high temperature superconductivity are addressed, which inherently influence, and in fact, may limit the role of high temperature superconductivity in many conventional technology applications. BCS theory is used to estimate the characteristics of high temperature superconductivity and to provide insight into the use as well as the potential limitations of high temperature superconductivity in high-impact technology areas.
