We present the construction and measurement details of a strongly tapered helical undulator for the Rubicon Inverse Free Electron Laser (IFEL) experiment. Results of the magnetic field measurements are presented, and these are used to produce simulations of the expected performance of the experiment. Finally, a study of the tolerances on the input parameters of the experiment is presented.
