Preparation of Superconducting Powders and Thick Films
In this review a small overview is given about methods of powder preparation and thick films tested in the field of High-Temperature-SuperConductors (HTSC). The first and very important step on the way to applications consists generally in the preparation of an adequate powder, alternatively prepared by the common ceramic way or tailor made by wet chemistry. Following, the preparation of thick films are discussed, mostly made by low cost processes in contrast to the expensive manufacturing of thick films.
