Abstract : An exact calculation is presented for the magnetic field produced by a pair of rectangular coils. The calculation is not based on approximations tailored for the central region of the configuration. For current sheets of rectangular cross section, a closed analytical expression is obtained for the fields which is exactly valid for all points on the principal coordinate planes, and for all possible combinations of coil parameters. The calculation is extended to sources of arbitrary thickness by numerical integration. Detailed numerical application is made to the calculation of field homogeneity in the central region of the configuration. (Author)
