Abstract : A method to synthesize an axial-homogeneous field is presented in which any number of standard coils may be positioned so as to describe any arbitrary magnetic field. The fields of standard coils are fit to a predetermined field by the method of least squares. Computer solutions predict a ripple along the axis of 1.25 percent for 13 coils over 2.26 meters. Experimental tests verify the solution. Off axis ripple is predicted by the equation B(r,o) = C sub 1 I sub o (2 pi r/1 sub o) which holds for constant fields. Computer codes to solve the entire problem are presented in the appendixes. (Author)
