Reusable customized systems
Specifically adapted to your system, the solutions we provide for the Research & Development phases can also be used during production and installation, thus optimizing your investment and saving time in the complete product cycle.
From general-purpose to mapping – always the ultimate in precision
Metrolab's single-point NMR magnetometers are as sophisticated as they are tough and easy to use. These versatile, ultra high-precision instruments are perfect for measuring the B0 fields typically encountered in MRI applications. They are suitable for simple hand-held field-strength checks, for example during ramping, as well as sophisticated long-term stability studies, simultaneous measurements at several locations, or even a simple field map. Metrolab's unique multi-point NMR teslameter systems allow computational models to be verified to a high order, thanks to their ultra high precision, a geometry adapted to the magnet, a high density of measurement points, and rapid acquisition time. The same field maps form the basis for a robust and rapid shimming procedure that can handle even the relatively poor field quality of a first prototype.
Fringe fields and dynamic effects
Metrolab's handheld three-axis magnetometer allows fringe fields to be mapped quickly and conveniently, whereas precision integrators – a standard tool for mapping accelerator magnets – can also be used effectively for high-precision studies of dynamic effects such as eddy currents.
The Hall effect is the most common method for measuring medium to high fields, for a wide range of applications.
