Abstract : This patent application discloses a permanent magnet structure comprising multiple hollow substantially cylindrical flux sources embedded one within another about an axially extending center passage such that each flux source is free to rotate in either direction by any desired angular magnitude independent of the motion of the others (s). In the case of a plurality of axially aligned truncated HCFS structures, the array may be arranged to provide a periodic magnetic structure suitable for use in a wiggler, or with a helical locus suitable for use in a twister.
