The measurement of an electron electric dipole moment (eEDM) with high precision using BaF, benefits from fine control over several key parameters. These parameters include a vacuum, lasers and an electric and magnetic field. Measurements employing a BaF supersonic beam, are planned. These measurements, happening in an Interaction Zone, will use a large electric field of 10 kV/cm, and a small magnetic field of order 6 nT, with small field gradients. In addition, control and understanding of molecular states using lasers and spectroscopy are crucial for a successful experiment. This poster discusses how to reach an electromagnetic field in the Interaction Zone, useful for an eEDM measurement.
