Abstract

The concept of a monolithic ribbon consisting of alternating layers of YBa2Cu3Ox and a dielectric insulation is described, and initial results are reported. The tape-casting ceramic process is used, and small coils of YBa2Cu3Ox are demonstrated. The dielectric insulation is a composite of glass and ceramic powders designed to cofire with the superconductor, and the ceramic powders are frustrated spinels designed to impart enthalpy stabilization in the liquid-hydrogen temperature range. Enthalpy ratios between the insulation and the superconductor up to 20 have been achieved (gravimetric basis).
