Superconducting Nb3Ge tape conductors 5 to 10 m long were fabricated by chemical vapor deposition. Such tapes could be used in high-field magnet applications. Average tape properties set the upper performance limit of a magnet at Hmax = 17 tesla (4.2 K). Highest critical-current densities obtained in thin and layered films set Hmax = 20 tesla (4.2 K).
