Plenary 7 - Nanocomposite Coated Conductors: towards optimal vortex pinning for high field applications

Location: Auditorium Lumière
Chair: Prof. Judit Driscoll, University of Cambridge

Upon the revolution of HTS Coated Conductors (CC), Nanocom- posites emerged as a smart conception to leap forward CC cost/performance to materials device integration levels. Physical and chemical growth methods undertook their remarkable deve- lopments with outstanding success. Now, EUROPE is immersed in a large cooperation program in Nanocomposite Coated Conduc- tors. I will review its state of the start in context with the world-wide effort, with special emphasis in materials synthesis, vortex pinning and integration to high field applications.
