Title: Fabrication and test of model superconducting inflector for g-2 at FNAL

The new FNAL g-2 experiment is based on the muon storage ring previously used at BNL. The 1.45 T dipole magnetic field in the storage ring is required to have very high (1 ppm) homogeneity. The muon beam injected into the ring must be transported through the magnet yoke and the main superconducting coil cryostat with minimal distortions. The old inflector magnet shielded the main dipole fringe field inside the muon transport beam pipe, with an outer NbTi superconducting screen, and did not disturb the field in the area of circulating beam. Nevertheless, this magnet had coils with closed ends in which a large fraction of muon beam particles were lost. A new magnet is envisioned utilizing the same cross section as the original with open ends for improved beam transport. A model magnet has been wound utilizing 3d printed parts to verify the magnetic behavior of the magnet at room temperature and validate winding of the complicated geometry required for the magnet ends. Finally, room temperature magnetic measurements have been performed and confirm the magnetic design
