    At least now JQ uses minimum current rather than the useless average current.

    Go to the AMSC site, click on HTS wire, go to order form and you will find "Minimum Current at 77K, self-field, 1µV/cm" as a requirement for order. Note the word average is missing, due it being meaningless, minimum Ic is what one orders, which is why JQ dances round this important criteria.

    As usual THE LYING TROLL is a LYING TROLL.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If one orders HTS wire, one is required to specify length, width, minimum current and type of protective layer.

    Perhaps STI forgot to ask what type of protective layer the cable demo customer wanted when it placed order over 2 years ago for 6m or less lengths and guessed wrong thus had to scrap the wire?

    Now if JQ can figure out that 50m of minimum 500 A/c-w plus splice plus 50m of minimum 500 A/c-w equates to 100m of unknown A/c-w wire, depending on loss from splice.

    A length of 50m of HTS tape does not equate to 100m of HTS tape even though the 50m tape is over twice the width, this is not a quilt.

    Full capacity of the pilot production 100m RCE-CDR is 100m length by 10mm width with a minimum (not average) A/c-w.

    In JQ's prepared presentation for the last quarter we now know that the designed 100m RCE-CDR has produced 50m of 500 A/c-w minimum wire which is half, not full designed capacity. This doesn't bode well for the commercial production machine.

    If one needs HTS wire of 150m lengths with a minimum 600 A up to 12 mm widths, then buy from SuNAM.

    How that $15 sp in 2013 turn out? Thinking is not one of this pumpers strong points, but is very flexible judging on how long it has been grabbing its ankles.

    SCON has diverged from the RF filter market to a completely different (but related) field. This company has a high upside, IMO. But it will take an earnings multiple to get the share price up beyond $15. I think that'll happen in 2012/2013.

    2013Q4 SA transcripts: "We completed a full capacity run of Conductus wire in our pilot equipment with over 90% of the output performing at an average of 350 amps per centimeter (A/cm) width."

    Average is meaningless, minimum current is what one orders as in the AMSC order form, "Minimum Current at 77K, self-field, 1µV/cm", because that minimum current is what is delivered from point A to point B.

    Now the LYING TROLL would have one believe that JQ made a mistake stating the ability to produce only 50m of minimum current of 500 A/c-m. This was stated in JQ's prepared presentation, no mistake was made.

    The reality is that STI is able to produce 50m of 500 k/A-m on its pilot production 100m RCE-CDR after of almost 2 years of tweaking.

    It receives no meaningful revenue, margins are unknown.

    Unable to fulfill 2-year old order for cable demo under 10m wire due to protective layer problem.

    Commercial production is still a hope, as was that GE collaboration and 2012 production, both of which didn't pan out.

    Right, R2. You stick to promoting the cutting-edge tech innovators like ISCO ... HaHaHaHaHa!!

    Here's the reality: STI is working with GE Global Research to refine 2G wire production per GE's specs under various uses. Upside for STI will be MASSIVE. Production will start next year. Orders will occur first.

    STI is tweaking the recipe for the finishing layer, while it is still tweaking the recipe for the deposition to obtain 100m of 500k/A-m on the 100m pilot production machine, you know, to prove the production method of STI.

    It's almost been two years and counting of tweaking on the pilot production and that pesky in-situ protective layer just needs a few more iterations, we're been hearing about these few more iterations for almost 2-years now.

    That $3.6m at the end of June is almost depleted, so more cash is needed.
    With the SP falling below $3.00 those $2.57 warrant holders may exercise and sell prior to warrants going underwater.

    SA 2014Q2 transcript: "I am happy to report that we successfully demonstrated this capability with our pilot production equipment in the second quarter. We completed a full capacity pilot run Conductus wire that delivered a minimum current of 500 amps per centimeter width at 77 degrees Kelvin across the entire deposition zone. This represents 100% yield for 50 meters of 10 millimeter wide wire which is the equivalent of 100 meters of 4 millimeter wire."

    Can someone cue JQ and THE LYING TROLL that the STI designed 100m pilot RCE-CDR has the stated capacity to produce 100m lengths by 10mm widths of HTS tape. Producing 50 meters by 10mm tape is not equivalent nor full capacity of the stated design.

    This was written in 2010 when THE LYING TROLL was in between paid shill jobs after ISCO folded, but has anything changed except for more undelivered promises, reverse stock splits, dilutions, etc.?

    At least THE LYING TROLL has found its comfort zone as a paid shill and moron.

    THE LYING TROLL would have one believe the cap layer for the cable demo wire is something new and unexpected. Remember STI expected to ship this wire in 2012-Q3, so STI knew at that time what the requirements were, but after producing wire found there were problems with the finishing cap layer.

    Look at the bright side, with the SP taking a nose dive those warrant holders are encouraged to exercise and dump shares, thus adding to STI's coffers.

    STI Press Release:
    "AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superconductor Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq:SCON) ("STI"), a world leader in the development and production of high temperature superconducting (HTS) materials and associated technologies, completed the acceptance process for its next generation Reactive Coevaporation Cyclic Deposition and Reaction (RCE-CDR) system. STI's engineers completed testing at the supplier's location and the equipment has been received at the company's Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence in Austin for installation."

    This STI designed 100m RCE-CDR pilot production machine has yet to produce a 100m length tape, but is able to produce half that length after almost 2-years of tuning.

    Things will be different with the new 1km RCE-CDR due 2014 2nd Qtr, deadline missed, now expected end of August, deadline missed.

    Let's see, deadlines continue to be missed, still trying (almost 2-years) to supply wire for that cable demo project, no orders with meaningful revenue, STI is almost out of money, stock price is heading for the cellar and paid pumpers are out in full force. Nothing new, same old, same old

    Almost the end of 2014 3rd qtr and customers are still finding the STI wire is useless, thus the same result, no orders.

    Finding the STI process to be a failure is not surprising as the then, but now former CTO of STI, Dr. Hammond presented at the 26 April 2011 MRS conference, "The second RCE method we discuss uses a liquid-assisted two step (LATS) process where the precursor is deposited first and then the YBCO structure is grown in a subsequent high-pressure oxygen step. The RCE-LATS process has the advantages of higher throughput and significant process simplification. We also discuss the coated conductor cost for these two processes and find that, especially in the case of RCE-LATS, it can approach $2/kAm, at 77 K and self-field, in high-volume manufacturing. We believe that this cost is sufficiently low to enable coated conductors for wide commercial acceptance of superconducting power devices. This work is supported by the Department of Energy Office of Electricity Delivery & Energy Reliability.", once the idiot in charge (JQ) chose the RCE-CDR process, Dr. Hammond left for Resonant.

    SA 2013Q4 transcripts, "Jeff Quiram - President & Chief Executive Officer
    Yes, we have definitely have reached the stage where folks have completed all of the testing. We continue to have discussions with them on several other items and I would say that nobody has yet taken the step where they have fully qualified our wire and stated that it’s going to be used in their device."

    Yep, customers have completed testing and found the product is useless.

    youthink, THE LYING TROLL is a paid pumper, thus, being "dishonest and intend to decieve." are requisites for the position.

    All we can do is have potential investors keep their guard up.

    I don't know which one is funnier, THE LYING TROLL, "And the fact is that he has absolutely no evidence that STI has not produced longer lengths."

    SA 2014Q2 transcript, JQ "This represents 100% yield for 50 meters of 10 millimeter wide wire which is the equivalent of 100 meters of 4 millimeter wire."

    50m N.E. 100m lengths regardless of width.

    The stated production length for this designed 100m pilot machine is a material fact, thus the evidence STI is only capable of producing 50m on this designed 100m length machine, which doesn't bode well for the commercial production machine.

    THE LYING TROLL, "First of all it was not a "cap layer", it was a "protective layer" applied after the standard encapsulation was placed around the entire wire. The protection layer is a "non standard" material and STI had to use a 3rd party."

    From STI website:
    "Finishing & Shipping

    Subsequent to the RCE-CDR superconducting growth, a cap layer of silver (or copper depending on the application) of 1-50µm is applied in-situ to protect the wire ...."

    At least STI understands a cap layer is needed to protect (i.e., protection layer) the wire.

    THE LYING TROLL is attempting to distract from the possibility that STI's wire is too brittle, thus fails when a cap layer is applied.

    The pilot 100m RCE-CDR machine is now capable of producing 50m lengths after about 2-years of tuning. This machine was built to prove the STI HTS process. STI has a backlog of orders, but no meaningful revenue for HTS wire shipped to customers.

    The cable demo wire was produced, but had to be scrapped, due to the cap layer, thus once again delaying this almost 2-year missed delivery date to an independent party that could determine if STI wire had a potential commercial product.
