Manufacturing Process


In the proposed manufacturing process the cylindrical former is shuttled between different chambers for each process step.

The cylinder moves between vacuum chambers for each process step.

The first step involves texturing the cylinder.

In the second step high temperature superconductor and gold layers are deposited. In the third step superconducting tracks are patterned using, for example, laser scribing or etching of the superconducting layer.
