Metrolab masters four technologies to measure magnetic fields:
If you need to measure a strong static magnetic field precisely, this is the most precise technology available. Here are some of the main applications for our magnetometers:
High-quality MRI images require a strong and extremely homogeneous magnetic field in the target area. MRI manufacturers shim their magnets to compensate for field inhomogeneities. A precise NMR magnetometer can acquire an accurate field map crucial to compute the exact compensation required.
Ultra-high-precision instruments are perfect for measuring the B0 fields in superconducting magnets. They are suitable for simple checks during ramping or sophisticated long-term stability studies during decay monitoring.
An NMR magnetometer is the absolute reference to calibrate a magnetometer using another technology.
Real-time monitoring of beam bending accelerator magnets is an application of choice for an NMR magnetometer. It provides an absolute and perfectly stable reference point.
The acquisition is nearly instantaneous; it measures both positive and negative field components for all three axes of the magnetic field, so you get a true magnetic field reading no matter how you hold the probe.
A handheld three-axis Hall magnetometer allows mapping fringe fields quickly and conveniently.
