Making it possible for scientists to focus on the impossible
Leveraging three decades of experience in leading laboratories throughout the world, we enable scientists to focus on the essence of their research. Our customers benefit not only from our industrial quality products, but also from our know-how in the areas of high precision and high field magnetic measurement and mapping.
Precision fluxmeters and Hall instruments for complex fields
A digital integrator completes Metrolab's range of precision magnetometers, for precision measurements of inhomogeneous or rapidly varying fields. Finally, Metrolab's Hall magnetometers provide simultaneous readings of all three components of the magnetic field, thus eliminating errors due to incorrect angular positioning.
Tap into thirty years of experience
Metrolab can supply standard equipment, customized equipment, consulting or simply advice. If we don't have what you need, we probably know where to find it. Allow us to think along as you design your next experiment.
The ultimate high-precision magnetometer
Metrolab's NMR magnetometers boast an absolute precision of 5 parts per million (ppm), measurement resolution of under 10 parts per billion (ppb), and drift of well under 5 ppb per day. Standard, robust proton probes measure up to over twenty Tesla. An extremely flexible architecture permits this range to be extended towards lower field strengths using probes with ESR (Electron Spin Resonance) samples, and to higher field strengths using, for example, deuterium samples. We can readily produce custom probes to suit the particular needs of your apparatus and experiment.
A powerful microcontroller and digital signal processor (DSP) provide a rich set of built-in analysis and control features, and an attractive software interface with on-line help makes them accessible to any physicist, engineer or technician. The Ethernet and USB computer interfaces use the standard protocols established by industry giants as Tektronix, Agilent and National Instruments.
The Hall effect is the most common method for measuring medium to high fields, for a wide range of applications.
Metrolab has historically been especially known for its integrators, primarily in the accelerator world.
