Two pieces of the textured Ni tapes were diffusively bonded under mechanical pressure, 0.3 MPa at 1400°C in a vacuum furnace. The cross-sectional view by SEM showed a good bonding without voids in the bonding line and the XRD measurements indicated it was still well textured. The buffer layer, CeO2, and the superconducting layer, YBCO, were successively deposited on the bonded tapes and were confirmed to be well textured.
