The Muon g-2 experiment uses electrostatic quadrupoles for vertical focusing in the muon storage ring, where higher-order electric field multipoles produce non linearities in the restoring forces. Top/bottom quadrupole plates are aligned to 0.5 mm and side plates are aligned to 0.75 mm over long length scales to limit the higher-order multipoles. Plate alignment techniques and an electric field map generated with OPERA 3D software are presented in this poster.
