Development of Ag-sheathed Bi(2223) tapes with oriented filaments

Ag-sheathed (Bi,Pb)2Sr2Ca2Cu3O10 tapes have been developed with a special filament configuration that can be of great interest when a magnetic field is applied to the tape at a significant angle with respect to the a–b planes of the superconductor. The fabrication process we propose allows the preparation of long conductors in which the filaments can be inclined with respect to the plane of the tape, according to the magnetic flux profile. Such tapes can be useful in a variety of applications, as for the outer parts of high field superconducting magnets, where the flux lines present large angles with respect to the conductor plane.
