Optimizing surface coils and the self-shielded gradlometer
A computational method for optimizing both single- and two-layer surface coils is presented. The method is easy to implement in practice using either a variational approach or through standard numerical matrix diagonalization techniques. Results of the optimization procedure are evaluated using measurements on prototype coils for a number of configurations and the finite-element numerical techniques. The results show that it is possible to construct practical coils that approximate the theoretically optimized coils quite well.
