  In the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) the normalized horizontal and vertical emittances of the electron and positron beams must be reduced to 500 nm and 5 nm before the beams enter the 3 TeV linear accelerators. An effective way to accomplish ultra-low emittances are damping rings. Damping rings are storage rings equipped with strong wiggler magnets. In a first approximation damping wigglers are more effective the shorter the period length and the stronger the magnetic field is. Only superconducting wiggler magnets meet the demanding magnetic specifications of the CLIC damping rings. Nb-Ti damping wiggler magnets fulfill the specifications of CLIC but Nb3Sn wiggler magnets would reach higher magnetic fields leading to even better beam properties for CLIC. Moreover, they have at the same time higher thermal and magnetic margins. Therefore, Nb3Sn wiggler magnets are under investigation at CERN despite the challenging manufacturing process. This paper presents first results of Nb3Sn coils and short model tests and outlines the further plans for developing Nb3Sn wiggler magnets at CERN.
