We have investigated the in-field critical current properties in BaZrO3-added (Y, Gd) Ba2Cu 3O7-δ (YGdBCO)-coated conductor fabricated by using a multi-coating trifluoroacetates metal-organic deposition (MOD) method. We compared these properties with EuBCO-coated conductor fabricated by the pulsed laser deposition (PLD) method. The sample using the 30-nm once-coat-layer-thickness donce shows superior in-field Jc down to 4.2 K than that of the previous standard coating using 170-nm-thick layer for each coating. From the analysis of E-J characteristics, an analytical expression for Jc as a function T and B has been derived. It was confirmed that the high Jc region in sample with donce = 30 nm is widely spread in high-temperature and high-magnetic-field region. By comparison with the Jc properties of the BaHfO3 -added PLD CCs, the minimum Jc, which is estimated from magnetic field angle dependence, shows even higher value up to 5 T of magnetic field at 65 K and up to 3 T at 77 K. From these results, the new MOD-YGdBCO process using the thin once-coat-layer-thickness is very promising for the practically important mid field region such as 3 to 5 T.
