Paper Abstract

For realistic sector magnets the effective field boundary is not parallel to the pole face boundary since in the corners the longitudinal and the radial fringing fields overlap. Thus the effective field boundary is always curved even if the pole face boundary is straight. This effect is especially large if the magnet air gap is a large fraction of the radius of curvature of the optic axis. It can be reduced, however, by field clamps and is enlarged by Rogowski pole end shapes. To determine the effective field boundary of realistic sector magnets 3D field calculations are necessary. For the present investigation such 3D fields were determined by the surface-charge method with all saturation effects being neglected.
