A new process for making Tl-Ba-Ca-Cu-O superconductors which is based on reactions between solid precursor Ba-Ca-Cu-oxides and vapor Tl2O3 has been developed. The Tl2O3 vapor process allows Tl-Ba-Ca-Cu-O superconductors to be easily made in the forms of complex bulk components, wires and fibers, and thick and thin films, and minimizes problems caused by toxicity and volatility of Tl starting compounds.
