High temperature superconductors (HTS) have been shown to carry significant current density in the presence of extremely high magnetic fields when operated at low temperature. The successful design of magnets needed for high energy physics applications using such high field superconductor depends critically on the detailed wire or tape parameters which are still under development and not yet well defined. In the project reported here, we are developing HTS for accelerator use by concentrating on the design of an innovative magnet that will have a useful role in muon beam cooling. Measurements of available materials and a conceptual design of a high field solenoid using YBCO superconductor are being analyzed with the goal of providing useful guidance to superconductor manufacturers for materials well suited to accelerator applications.
