In a highlight Technical Review, “Impact of high growth rates on the microstructure and vortex pinning of high-temperature superconducting coated conductors,” T. Puig et at., Nature Reviews Physics, Volume 6 / February 2024 / 132–148, critically evaluate different growth methods for the processing of high-temperature superconducting REBa2Cu3O7 coated conductors concerning the creation of optimum landscapes for vortex pinning, i.e., a tailored microstructures with artificial pinning sites. The basic understanding of vortex physics is complemented by comparison of different manufacturing routes and their throughputs.
