Solenoid Magentic Field¶
A uniform magnetic field (with no fringing effects) is easy to input into SIMION via a mangetic PA file (e.g. p.2-10 of the SIMION 8.0 or 7.0 manual) or via an mfield_adjust segment in a user program attached to an empty magnetic PA file . However, a real solenoid has fringing effects (non-uniform fields), especially near the two solenoid ends.
