Applied Superconductivity Sept. 15th to 19th

     - Large Concentration of Industry Leading, Multinational Customers -

                - Exhibiting Conductus® Superconducting Wire -

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Superconductor Technologies
Inc. (STI) (Nasdaq:SCON), a world leader in the development and production of
high temperature superconducting (HTS) materials and associated technologies,
will exhibit its Conductus^® superconducting wire at the European Conference
on Applied Superconductivity (EUCAS) in Genova, Italy from Sept. 15^th to
19^th at Booth 16. This biannual event attracts industry leading scientists,
technologists and industrial manufacturers dedicated to the advancement of
science and commercial productivity in the superconductivity field. More than
1,000 professionals from 44 different countries participated in 2011.

"EUCAS is an ideal event to strengthen our customer relationships with
industry leading, multinational companies with established pipelines for
superconducting solutions," commented Adam Shelton, STI's VP of Marketing and
Product Line Management. "As they plan for 2014 and beyond, each customer will
require a reliable source for superconducting wire, and we plan to provide
just that. Our customers are looking to STI's extensive superconducting
experience and novel proprietary technology to assist them in the
commercialization of superconducting devices for multiple power grid
applications and high-field magnets used in NMR and MRI machines. For broad
commercialization, the market demands improved availability, performance and
economics of superconducting wire. Our plan is to address this demand as we
ramp to 750 kilometers of capacity in 2014 and beyond."

Please join STI at Booth 16 on the second floor of this year's EUCAS venue,
the Magazzini del Cotone conference facility located in the Porto Antico of
Genova. Dr. Jeong Huh will also deliver a technology and product development
milestone update presentation titled "Development of Low-Cost 2G HTS Coated
Conductors at STI" during the 2M-WT: Coated Conductors II session on Tuesday,
Sept. 17 at 10:30 in the Levante e Ponente room.


EUCAS is principally aimed at bringing out the most recent scientific
developments in the investigation of superconducting materials, and at
fostering discussion on new potential applications of superconductivity and on
technology transfer to industry. More information can be found

performance and are inherently subject to uncertainties and other factors,
which could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking
statements. These factors and uncertainties include, but are not limited to:
our limited cash and a history of losses; the limited number of potential
customers; the limited number of suppliers for some of our components and our
HTS wire; there being no significant backlog from quarter to quarter; our
market being characterized by rapidly advancing technology; overcoming
technical challenges in attaining milestones to develop and manufacture
commercial lengths of our HTS wire; customer acceptance of our HTS wire;
fluctuations in product demand from quarter to quarter; the impact of
competitive filter products, technologies and pricing; manufacturing capacity
constraints and difficulties; our ability to raise sufficient capital to fund
our operations (whether through registered direct offerings or otherwise), and
the impact on our strategic wire initiative of any inability to raise such
funds; the impact of any such financing activity on the level of our stock
price, which may decline in connection with the sales under registered direct
offerings or otherwise; the dilutive impact of any issuances of securities to
raise capital; and local, regional, national and international economic
conditions and events and the impact they may have on us and our customers,
such as the current worldwide recession.

Forward-looking statements can be affected by many other factors, including,
those described in the "Business" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of
Financial Condition and Results of Operations" sections of STI's Annual Report
