The discovery of high-temperature superconductivity almost two decades ago has been hailed as one of the most exciting advancements in modern physics. However, the full impact of high-temperature superconductors (HTS) will only be realized with the success of large-scale applications. For most large-scale bulk applications of HTS, long-length flexible wires that can carry a large amount of supercurrent are required.
