Abstract:

Work performed under this program consisted of a consultative work with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, b joint work with WPAFB to develop a concept for converting YBCO films deposited on a wide substrate strip into a conductor with a pattern of narrow spiral filamentary strips for AC operation, c calculation of the additional losses due to substrates on YBCO conductors and sheaths on BSCCO type conductors, and d new loss theory for polycrystalline high-Tc superconductors based on Maxwells equations.
