Postdoc call offer entitled: “Industrially Manufacturing Process for A high temperature superconducting Coated conductors Technology”
Coated conductors (CCs), known as the second generation of high temperature superconductors (2GHTS), have triggered broad and fruitful R&D efforts to ensure industrial scalability and enable wide market adoption. Some challenges currently limit the practical use of HTS conductors. First, the high cost / performance ratio imposed by the fabrication methods of kilometer-lengths epitaxial YBCO films. Second, the low throughput in the production of CCs which further leads to limitations in generating drastic cost reductions for CCs. Due to overall cost, today it remains complex to spread the potential of large-scale applications based on coated conductors.
