In this paper the smallest or optimal dimensions of a Halbach cylinder of a finite length for a given sample volume and desired flux density are determined using numerical modeling and parameter variation. A sample volume that is centered in and shaped as the Halbach cylinder bore but with a possible shorter length is considered. The external radius and the length of the Halbach cylinder with the smallest possible dimensions are found as a function of a desired internal radius, length of the… Expand
