The functioning of an accelerator relies on the ultra-precise control of hundreds of magnets. Although every magnet is a single point of failure, around-the-clock operation has to be assured for months at a time, often with a lifespan of decades. The fact that accelerators all over the world do exactly this is a tribute to human ingenuity – and to good magnetometers!
Metrolab is the only supplier of a complete range of industrial-quality, high-precision magnetometers in the extremely demanding environment of particle accelerators. Our NMR precision magnetometers are the ultimate instruments for calibration, real-time field control, and dipole mapping; whereas our digital integrators have entered history as the reference for more difficult magnet mapping jobs. For two decades, accelerator operators and particle physicists have relied on our equipment to get and stay operational.
