Title: Jointing structure and jointing method for superconducting cable

Abstract: An intermediate jointing structure having excellent mechanical and electrical characteristics and method of preparing the same. The intermediate jointing structure includes a metal pipe and a jointing sleeve. The metal pipe is inserted between a pair of superconducting cables and is fixed to the formers by welding. A plurality of superconductor wires, shorter than the conductive metal tube, are arranged around a conductive metal tube in a longitudinal direction. The arranged superconductor wires are taped with Ag tape so as to form the jointing sleeve. The jointing sleeve is jointed and fixed on an outer surface of the metal pipe.
