Cu-16 mass%Sn-0.5 mass%Ti with a Sn content over a solution limit among Cu has been fabricated as a matrix material of bronze-processed (Nb, Ti)3Sn conductor. This material is well deformed because of no precipitations of Cu-Sn compound in it. The (Nb, Ti)3Sn conductors with the Cu-16 mass%Sn-0.5 mass%Ti matrix have been heat-treated by conventional one-stage and two-stage processes. The resulting conductor has shown high-field superconducting performance which corresponds to the one shifted to 1 T of magnitude higher than that of (Nb, Ti)3Sn conductor with Cu-15 mass%Sn-0.3 mass%Ti matrix.
