Abstract
High-gradient superconducting quadrupole magnets are being developed by the US LHC Accelerator Project for the Interaction Regions of the Large Hadron Collider. Determination of the magnetic axis for alignment of these magnet s will be performed using a single stretched wire system. These measurement s will be done both at room and cryogenic temperatures with very long wire lengths, up to 20m. This paper reports on the stretched wire alignment meth odology to be employed and the results of recent room-temperature measureme nts on a 2 m model magnet with long wire lengths.
