This link has some sample articles related to AMSC that were in Superconductor Week in December 1999.

http://www.superconductorweek.com/scw/sample-htswire.htm#medical4

Included which I found of interest was:

"What can make a major difference to the potential breadth of HTS applications is wire cost" Malozemoff continued. "While BSCCO OPIT wires with silver may ultimately achieve cost-performance close to $10/kAm (where "cost" means direct cost of materials and direct labor), the price is likely to be more than two times higher. Such a price will be adequate for quite a few applications, but it will not be low enough to impact the broadest range of copper-replacement opportunities. YBCO coated conductor, in which the YBCO is deposited using conventional thin-film vacuum deposition processes, will also have difficulty meeting the $10/kAm price-performance target." By lowering YBCO and buffer seed layer deposition costs, Malozemoff believes the technology can achieve the $10/kAm price-performance target."

Good Luck.
