© 2002-2011 IEEE. This paper presents the design and modeling of a second-generation (2G) high-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnet, which is suitable for Lorentz force electrical impedance tomography (LFEIT). The concept of constructing a superconducting magnet using the configuration of a Halbach array is proposed, which can achieve a favorable thin geometry for the LFEIT system, and is able to build a homogeneous magnetic field with high intensity. The modeling of this superconducting Halbach array magnet has been executed by COMSOL Multiphysics. H-formulation together with B-dependent critical current density and bulk approximation are used as the basic tools for modeling. Results reveal that this magnet can achieve over 1-T magnetic field in the cross section required. The optimization of HTS coils' location and different numbers of coils are carried out to balance the strength and homogeneity of magnetic field.
