A new method for the construction of high-temperature superconducting magnetic shielding structures has been demonstrated. With this process, a ceramic laminate of high-temperature superconducting powder and silver metal sheets is formed and then shaped into a cylindrical magnetic shield by deep drawing before being sintered. Two types of superconducting powders were used in this experiment, YBa2Cu3O7 and Bi1.8Pb0.4Sr2Ca2Cu3O x, which exhibited shielding factors of 1100 and 330, respectively.
