In recent years, the quality of high-temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes has been improving rapidly, becoming available in sufficient quantity and length, and can be applied to devices for power systems and industrial applications. Therefore, we are carrying out a feasibility study on the application of HTS coil to a medical accelerator system for particle cancer therapy, and designing a new HTS cyclotron that is to be compact, highly efficient, is able to extract high-energy beam and consume less power. In this paper, we report our effort to develop a conceptual magnetic design of a 'next generation HTS cyclotron' using high-temperature superconducting technology.
