Abstract

This paper presents the development status of joint method between the superconducting YBCO coated conductors (YBCO CC). In general, the YBCO-CC tape consists of an upper stabilizer, substrate, buffer, YBCO and a bottom stabilizer. It is suggested that the stabilizer between the two YBCO-CC tapes need to be removed, in order to improve the characteristics of the joints. The removing process was conducted by using heat and partial etching. The resistance and critical current of the joints were measured from the V - I curve. The optical micrographs were analyzed for microstructures between the joint areas. After several times of over current test, the critical currents of the various types of joint samples were examined for applying to the high temperature superconducting magnet system.
