The 2005 Wire Development Workshop was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Superconductivity Program for Electric Systems. This 12th Wire Workshop brought together the leading U.S. scientists and engineers involved in the research and development of high-temperature superconducting (HTS) wire. This important Workshop focused on the development of commercially useful "coated conductors."
