Super-thin Superconducting Cables

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have found a way to make high-temperature superconducting power cables that are a tenth the diameter of existing superconducting cables but can carry just as much current. The thin, flexible cables could open up new applications?...
These cables are especially designed for use in photovoltaic applications. They provide the optimal cable connection between the solar cells and from the solar cells to the inverter or DC main cable.
