Structural Analysis of Superconductors at MTF: A Review

Open access

Abstract

The activities of the young STU MTF research team focused on the material properties of superconductors were reviewed for the first time. We performed structural analyses on multiple types of superconducting tapes in order to get deeper insight into the correlation between their structure and electromagnetic properties, both experimentally and by modelling. We also addressed the joining of tapes by lead-free solders.
