I am currently in my final year of univesity at Lancaster (England) and doing my final year project which is to stimulate human nerves ot help multiple sclerosis. I am trying to produce a field from a coil which is connected up to an alternating supply of 15 Volts, 4Amps, frequencies min 1Hz and max 100Hz although I am having problems choosing the type of core and coil shape. I have looked into E cores but it looks as though it wouldnt be possible to get a large enough airgap where the flux density is greatest. I have also been looking into toroidal coils but it looks like all of the flux stays in the core and is not emitted. Is this true? I would be very grateful if you could recommend the best types of core and core format for me to gain the best electromagnetic field possible. Many thanks! Paul
