Abstract This course addresses the current state and prospects of high temperature superconductor (HTS) technology. The scope is to illustrate the close synergetic relationship between the development of a deeper understanding of the material properties and the progresses in the conductor technology, with a focus on high field magnet applications. The course is organized in four parts: 1) An introduction to high temperature superconductivity; 2) The basics of HTS conductor fabrication (REBCO coated conductors, BSCCO-2223 tapes and BSCCO-2212 wires), including latest developments to improve performance; 3) An overview of the electromagnetic, electromechanical and thermophysical properties of the conductors; 4) Critical issues and innovative design concepts for the HTS-based magnet with an overview of noteworthy ongoing magnet projects.
