HTS and HEP
In the present situation, it appears that the progress in HTS will
be driven by communities other than High Energy Physics (HEP).
The most we can do is to give small but important support to industries to encourage a few small experiments that are critical to accelerator magnets and to keep the kind of product that matters to us viable (in U.S.).
In parallel, we learn how to use HTS technology in accelerators
- Magnet designs for HTS
- Experimental coil development and test in background field
But, looking at the progress, overall long term (~5 years) picture looks promising.
