Conventional solenoids focus charged-particle beams equally in both the transverse planes. Elliptic solenoids can have unequal amount focusing in the two planes and can, therefore, be utilized in making non-circular or planar beams. We have worked out the focusing mechanism in an elliptic solenoid and have given its transfer matrix which is useful in beam line calculations.
