Research Institution

Commercially available magnetic field probes for the 0-2 to 5 Tesla operating range are susceptible to radiation damage- Many facilities require accurate magnetic field measurements in this range in a high-radiation environment- In this work, a radiation-tolerant, accurate magnetic field probe for the 0-2 to 5 Tesla range will be developed- It will use optical fibers to couple the radiation-resistant measurement head to a remote control unit- The Phase I work will optimize the experimental configuration for the measurement, and result in a proof-of-principle demonstration of the concept- Also in Phase I, a design will be completed for a prototype to be built in Phase II- The innovative new device will find application in experimental physics facilities and in medical diagnostics-
