2The Model of the Lower Cryostat in TOSCA (Post-processor) R=60 cm, L=396 cmSaddle “cosine theta coils”Cryoperm shield (R=62.23 cm, L= cm, thickness cm (.04 inch)).Superconducting shield (R=62.87 cm, L= cm, thickness cm (.01 inch)).Four mumetal shields (all inch thick, L=610 cm) with radii: cm, cm cm and cm.
3The problem of the false EDM of the neutron. A false nEDM can arise from two sources:1. The presence of magnetic field gradients.2. The effective magnetic field of a particle moving in the electric field.B0=10mGFor ultra cold neutronsIfthen

7The average volume field gradient for a system of 40 modified coils (with different K and no errors in position) placed inside the Cryoperm, Superconductor and 4 Mumetal shields.For 40 Coils (K=1.6E-3) DS= mm (coil1) to mm (coil 15).The 40 Coils (K=1.88E-3) DS =0.056 mm (coil 1) to 1.27 mm (coil 15).This requires a precision better then 1 mm in the location of the coil (difficult to achieve in practice).
810 sets of 40 coils (K=0.00174) with random (Gaussian) errors (added to the position of the coils). If the position of the 40 coils (K= ) have no errors then <dBx/dx>/B0= E-6 (1/cm).Statistics<dBx/dx>/B0(right cell)<dBx/dx>/B0 (left cell)Max |<dBx/dx>|/B07.24E-63.839E-6Standard deviation3.365E-62.218 E-6MeanE-6E-6 (1/cm)

11The sum of the average gradients <dBx/dx>/B0 in the left and in the right cells can be decreased by adjusting one of the electric currents I2L or I2R while the other one is left unchanged.
12The average volume electric field <dBx/dx> inside the left and right cells can be made smaller then 1E-8 (1/cm) by adjusting the electric currents I2L and I2R through the M=8 coils. Before and after the adjustment B0 remains essentially the same (41.8 mG for E1 and mG).Set of coilsK=0.011) I1=60mAI2L=I2R=210mAI2L/I1=3.5<dBx/dx>/B0(1/cm),left / rightStep 2)I1=60 mAI2R=210 mA( 1/cm)Left Cell Right Cell3) I1=60 mAI2R and I2L are both increaseddBx/dx>/B0(1/cm)Left CellRight CellB0(mG)E1Left cell1.879E-6I2L= mA2.088E-6I2L = mAI2R = mAE-641.8Right cell-2.234E-6-2.079E-6E-6E25.647E-6I2L=209.64mA3.209E-6I2R=231.2I2L=230.80.183 E-643.33-0.357E-6E-6-0.21 E-6
13ConclusionIf two set of coils (N=40 andM=8) are built with the same K and with currents I1 and I2 then the electric current I2 (through the M=8 coils) can be adjusted such that the average gradient of the field is minimizedThe sum of the average volume gradients in both cells can be made zero if the electric currents through the coils with centers on +OX (I2R) is allowed to be different then the current through the coils with centers on -OX (I2L). This difference depends on the “errors” in the position of the coils. The average value of the relative ratio (I2L-I2R)/I2L is smaller then 1%.
