We update here on the status of one of the main components of a 1.3 GHz NMR magnet currently being developed at the MIT Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory (FBML): the 600 MHz HTS insert coil. Started in 2000 as a 3-phase program and currently in its final phase (Phase 3A), the HTS insert will first be installed in the bore of a 500 MHz all LTS magnet, generating a field of 25.8 T (1.1 GHz). In Phase 3B, we will place the HTS insert in the bore of a 700 MHz LTS magnet, achieving our ultimate goal of completing a high-resolution 1.3 GHz magnet. The HTS insert, built as a stack of double pancakes (DP), consists of two concentric stack of coils, the inner coil wound with YBCO tape and the outer coil with Bi2223/Ag tape. The series-connected coils, immersed in a bath of liquid helium at atmospheric pressure, will be operated in driven mode. The paper describes detailed aspects of: 1) design and fabrication of both coils, 2) testing of individual DPs at 77 K to characterize the current carrying capabilities and magnetic performance of each DP coil, 3) techniques and elements utilized in the DP-to-DP splice procedure and, 4) splice dissipation.
