Superconducting quadrupole magnets for the interaction regions of the Large Hadron Collider are being developed by the US-LHC Accelerator Project. These 70 mm bore quadrupole magnets are intended to operate in superfluid helium at 1.9 K with a nominal field gradient of 215 T/m. A series of 2 m model magnets are being built and tested at Fermilab to optimize design and construction parameters. Measurements of the field quality of the model magnets tested to date and comparisons with the required field quality are reported in this paper.
