Although low temperature superconducting (LTS) switches are pretty common nowadays (used in MRI magnets etc), HTS switches are far less so, in fact I'm wondering whether the one I built recently is the world's first? Does anyone know otherwise? Does anyone care? (I doubt it).

Also, is this the right sort of forum for this sort of thing? Does anyone know of any others?

a well-known type of hts tape. it means the actual switch is pretty large, in fact it looks rather like a bomb, with lots of wires poking out.

It might do better over in "Technology". How high is your "high-temperure"?

110K, so I operated it at 77.
