Future Directions
for Cuprate Conductors

Abstract - Superconducting cuprate conductors present several challenges and research opportunities related to the areas of performance and cost. In order to meet these challenges, a combination of radical new approaches is required. This paper proposes several novel ideas and demonstrates early results in some of these areas.
