Two subscale coils of Bi-2212 wire have been made and tested in a DOE STTR collaboration between Cryomagnetics and the Applied Superconductivity Center at Florida State University. The coils are used to test the feasibility of using small-diameter wire in a solenoid configuration where single strand wire performance is crucial. If successful, the implementation of small-diameter wire into high field Bi-2212 HTS solenoids will allow for high J_E operation with moderate currents, making feasible the use of more modest control equipment, power supplies, and current leads. Furthermore, lower operating currents may allow series-connected design configurations with LTS background magnets, allowing for better, simpler, and more effective quench protection methods. A 25-Tesla magnet design, consisting of an 8-Tesla Bi-2212 coil with a 17-Tesla LTS coil, is underway at Cryomagnetics, and considerations of critical current, hoop stress, and quench protection will all be fully addressed.
