A numerical procedure is presented for the design of composite pulses according to specific experimental requirements. Removing arbitrary restrictions on the pulse parameters allows the design of efficient composite pulses with fewer components and shorter overall length than before. New dual-compensating composite inversion pulses with three to seven components are presented and their tolerance to setting-up errors is discussed.
