The field harmonics are then deduced using a knowledge of the geometry of the coil. • A coil often uses several loops of different geometries to improve the accuracy of measurements by a process of “bucking”.

The harmonics allow computation of field everywhere in the aperture (within a circle of convergence) using only a few numbers. • These coefficients obviously depend on the choice of origin and orientation of the coordinate system. Measured harmonics, therefore, often need to be centered and rotated.

The integrator drift, however, can be a problem, and needs correction. 14 Animesh Jain, BNL Signal from a Tangential Coil Y Br ∆ θ+ ∆ / 2 Coil Φ(t ) = NL ∫ B r ( Rc , θ) Rc dθ θ− ∆ / 2 Rc θ Coil Support Flux through the coil at time t is: ω N = No. of turns L = Length ∆ = Opening angle δ = angle at (t = 0) ω = angular velocity θ = ωt + δ (angle at t) USPAS, Santa Barbara, June 23-27, 2003 X n 2 NLRref  Rc   n∆    =∑ sin  ×   n  2  n =1  Rref  [Bn sin(nωt + nδ) + An cos(nωt + nδ)] ∞ The periodic variation of flux is described by a Fourier series, whose coefficients are related to the Normal and Skew harmonics, and geometric parameters of the coil.
