Magnet applications for high energy physics has long been an important driver for the development of superconducting technology. New high temperature superconductors (HTS), which have very high values of the upper critical field Hc2, show promise for magnets generating fields greater than 25 T, such as those required for muon cooling . (Rare Earth)Ba2Cu 3Oy (REBCO) coated conductor is an HTS material which is well suited to these needs; however it requires characterization in the low temperature (4.2 K), high magnetic field regime. We are proposing to measure electro-mechanical and magnetic properties, including angular field dependence of commercially available REBCO conductor. Here we present results of initial testing to characterize commercially available REBCO coated conductors at 77 K, including critical current and quench testing to calculate minimum the quench energy (MQE) and normal zone propagation velocity (NZPV).
