Abstract

While providing the potential for high operating temperature, oxide superconductors have low strain tolerance and have not been fabricated in the form of flexible conductors. A technique is described which allows configurations of these materials, fabricated by extensions of conventional ceramic techniques, to be incorporated into a high field magnet.
