Abstract : A method to synthesize an axialhomogeneous 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)
