Paper Abstract

This paper presents a ray tracing program using a realistic representation of the magnetic field produced by a "Halbach" configuration of rare earth cobalt magnets. An analytic expression is derived for the field due to a pair of magnets in each of the two arrangements of the above configuration treating them as being infinitely long in the direction perpendicular to the axis of the wiggler and to the direction of the magnetic field. Empirical expressions are then used to reduce this to the finite length of the magnets. The program was written in BASIC and compiled to run on an IBM PC(TM) equipped with an 8087 math processor.
