Following up on our 2013 and 2014 measurements of electron cloud trapping in a quadrupole magnet with 7.4~T/m gradient in the 5.3~GeV positron storage ring at Cornell University, we have redesigned the shielded-stripline time-resolving electron detector and installed a wide-aperture quadrupole magnet at a location in the ring where its field can be compensated by a nearby quadrupole, thus allowing the first measurements of cloud trapping as a function of field gradient. The transverse acceptance of the electron detector has been tripled, allowing tests of model predictions indicating a dramatic cloud splitting effect which exhibits a threshold behavior as a function of bunch population. In addition, a vacuum chamber optimized for cloud buildup measurements using resonant microwave phenomena has been employed. We describe design considerations and modeling predictions for the upcoming 2016 data-taking run. This project is part of the CESR Test Accelerator program, which investigates performance limitations in low-emittance storage and damping rings.
