Abstract
Fermilab and LBNL are in the midst of a model magnet program to develop and prove the design of quadrupoles for use in the LHC Interaction Region inne r triplets. These magnets have a nominal gradient of 205 T/m in a 70 mm bor e, and operate in superfluid helium at 1.9 K. The R&D program addresses mag netic, mechanical, thermal design and quench protection issues. This paper describes design, fabrication experience and test results from the first 2 m models.
