Helmholtz coil design.

  1. Dec 22, 2009 #1
    Dear Sirs,
    I was asked to design a Helmholtz coil. Being an electronic engineer, I can design electronic circuits but I have no idea about designing Helmholtz coils. Can you help me by suggesting a paper or article that describes a straightforward, step-by-step method for designing these coils? I tried Google but I was lost in about 22000 results.
    Thank you.

    A google search turned up this master's thesis on the design and construction of Helmholtz coils:
    In particular, Chapter 4 looks like it may be useful for you.

    Instead of googling "Helmholtz coil", you could be a little more specific by googling the following:
