Paper Abstract

Very high critical current densities are exhibited by epitaxial thin films of the high-temperature superconductors (on single-crystal substrates). Can similar high-current densities be achieved in the form of thin films on large-area polycrystalline substrates? If so, high-current superconducting tapes can be fabricated. We examine the arguments for and against this approach and briefly review the progress to date, in our laboratory and elsewhere, toward achieving flexible high-current tapes.
