An application of the target field method to the design of shielded biplanar gradient coils for magnetic resonance imaging electromagnets is presented. Some specific cases are studied, and optimized geometries are proposed for the axial and transverse gradient coils that eliminate the third- and minimize the fifth-order terms in the magnetic field expansion.
