In order to investigate the possibility of using superconducting magnets for fast field cycling (FFC) NMR relaxometry, a NbTi magnet able to achieve high field variation rates in a constant background field has been designed and tested. The design layout consists in an outer superconducting magnet working in persistent mode and an inner superconducting magnet working in pulsed mode. The layout of the inner magnet has been optimized taking into account field strength, field homogeneity, stray field and inductive coupling with outer magnet. A demonstration pulsed magnet has been tested in a background field, achieving the main desired working features.
