A technological innovation--Superconducting Wires by Epitaxial Growth on SSIFFS--developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has enabled the fabrication of a round or low-aspect ratio, single-crystal superconducting wire.
According to the developer, this is the only known technology that allows fabrication of a round or low-aspect ratio, single-crystal, high-temperature superconducting wire, which can operate at temperatures of 65K-77K and has intrinsically low hysteretic AC losses.
