Abstract: Laminated conductor structure for RF was proposed by A.M. Clogston in 1951.The motivation was to reduce the skin-effect loss caused by Joule heating.When the currents are well distributed to conductor foils that is thinner than the skin depth, the current density can be reduced and the power dissipation in the conductor can be reduced.This structure, however, has not been practically used, maybe because of some restrictions to apply. When we apply the similar layered structure for superconducting (sc.) surfaces, similar restriction may hit.Some thoughts that may be useful for sc. from the study on normal conducting case will be discussed.
