High temperature superconductors can be made ductile by making a composite of the superconductor and a ductile material. The composite material is deposited by simultaneously plasma spray depositing a high temperature superconductor and a ductile material. The resulting material is a microscopically uniform mixture that preserves the high Tc characteristics.
