The project is entitled “Ultrafast growth of ultrahigh performance superconducting tapes (ULTRASUPERTAPE)” and has been granted under the Panel PE8 “Products and Processing Engineering”.

An unprecedented approach for low cost / high throughput / high performance High Temperature Superconducting tapes for the new clean, efficient and smart energy paradigm is envisaged. A transient liquid assisted growth (TLAG) in chemical solution deposited layers is used to reach ultrafast growth of thick superconducting tapes. An integrated system based on additive manufacturing and digital printing is devised to address a competitive manufacturing process with very high throughput and low cost, where combinatorial chemistry is selectively used for fast screening. Ultra-high tapes performances at high and ultrahigh magnetic fields are envisioned by maximizing the superconducting condensation energy with local strain and electronic state engineering.
