Abstract
Development of the LHC low-beta insertion quadrupole magnet is in progress at KEK since 1995 as a cooperative program between CERN and KEK, Five 1-m s hort model magnets have been fabricated and three of them have been tested, From the various test results of the first two models, the coil configurat ion was further optimized to reduce the higher magnetic field harmonic coef ficients, The cold test of the third model showed satisfactory performances of the field harmonics. After this R&D work, we are on a stage for fabrica tion of two prototype magnets which have the same scale as the production m agnets. The status of the R&D for the LHC low-beta insertion quadrupole mag net at KEK is described.
