Abstract
Fermilab, in collaboration with LBNL and BNL, is developing a quadrupole fo r installation in the interaction region inner triplets of the LHC. This ma gnet is required to have an operating gradient of 215 T/m across a 70 mm co il bore, and operates in superfluid helium at 1.9 K. A 2 m magnet program a ddressing mechanical, magnetic, quench protection, and thermal issues assoc iated with the design was completed earlier this year, and production of th e first full length, cryostatted prototype magnet is underway. This paper s ummarizes the conclusions of the 2 m program, and the design and status of the first full-length prototype magnet.
