The program described in this paper is focused on improvement of the relevant material properties of HTSs and on development of fabrication methods that can be transferred to industry for production of commercial conductors. Our research has resulted in advances in fabrication methods that improve the performance of long lengths of polycrystalline HTS wires and tapes. We have examined the Y-Ba-Cu-O (YBCO), Bi-Sr-Ca-Cu-O (BSCCO), and Tl-Ba-Ca-Cu-O (TBCCO) classes of HTSs.
