The goal of this Exploratory Topic is to focus the attention of the scientific and technical community on specific areas of interest related to the manufacturing processes of high-performance, rapidly produced superconducting tapes, encourage dialogue among those interested in this area, and provide a timetable for the submission of full applications.

Widely available low-cost high-temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes would encourage their use into several energy-related applications that could have major implications in the energy transition. The superconductors targeted in this Exploratory Topic are expected to help enable the market growth and proliferation of nuclear fusion, superconducting cables for the electric grid, electric aviation, and superconductor-based electric generators/motors.
