A study was performed on the in situ synthesis of superconducting MgB2 fibers within a magnesium matrix. It was shown that the MgB2 fibers exhibited a critical temperature slightly above 39 K and a critical current density of 360 kA/cm2 at 5 K and zero field, comparable with the best results of bulk MgB2. The results showed that the process is scalable to continuous lengths of superconducting Mg/MgB2 wires.
