For the Future Circular Collider (FCC), a 100 TeV post Large Hadron Collider machine, 750 main quadrupoles with a gradient of around 400 T/m are required. This paper presents an electromagnetic design optimization of a double aperture Nb3Sn quadrupole, fulfilling the specifications and a structural design of a single aperture configuration towards a prototype
