Magnetic fields for plasma physics experiments have been produced In many sizes, configurations, and field strengths. In many cases the experiments have been handicapped by limited power, limited field strength, or duration of experiments by insufficient power or Inadequate cooling for the magnet coils. In addition, the heavy coils, support structure, and cooling passages have interfered with free access to the centerline of the magnetic fields.
