HTS Common Coil Program
BNL is embarking on a promising BSCCO 2212 common coil “cable” magnet program.
kA quality Rutherford cable. A very good collaboration between labs (BNL, LBL) and industries (IGC, Showa).
First test a pair of 10-turn coils in common coil configuration.
Then depending on the progress, continue with more 10-turn coils and/or
go for full 40-turn cable (either Ag and mix or all HTS strands) coil.
Test a pair of coils in a stand-alone mode and in a hybrid high field configuration.
More on HTS in a later talk by Arup Ghosh.

10kA type Rutherford cable may be possible in near future!
Over 80 meter of kA class cable (over 1.5 km of wire) to be shortly available (weeks to months, in installments) to BNL for testing cables, winding coils, making short magnets, etc.
