Abstract
Tai-Yang Research of Delaware proposes to design and fabricate an HTS double-pancake coil in support of the VASIMR experiment. The proposed HTS coil will implement novel CVD diamond technology for a lighter system weight with greater thermal uniformity and stability. CVD diamond technology in combination with HTS magnets offer significant advantages over traditional technology in terms of system reliability.
