In this paper we present a coil winding concept for a large aperture, combined-function 90 degree magnet that allows for a significantly more compact carbon ion gantry. The winding concept enables the reduction in the size and weight of the magnet without compromising the important beam transport properties. Alternatively, a small aperture gantry requires a post-gantry scanner. We present a compact design for a post-gantry point-to-parallel scanning system.
