An instrument used to measure the intensity of a magnetic field without reference to other magnetic instruments.



Related Terms

ELECTROKINETOGRAPH

An instrument used to measure ocean current velocities based on their electrical effects in the magnetic field of the earth.

HALL-PLATE DEVICE

A sensor that uses the Hall effect to measure magnetic field strength.

DIP NEEDLE

A magnetic needle suspended so as to be free to rotate about a horizontal axis. An instrument using such a needle to measure magnetic dip is called a DIP CIRCLE. A dip needle with a sliding weight that can be moved along one of its arms to balance the magnetic force is called a HEELING ADJUSTER.

HALL-EFFECT GAUSSMETER

A gaussmeter that consists of a thin piece of silicon or other semiconductor material which is inserted between the poles of a magnet to measure the magnetic field strength by means of the Hall effect.

FLUXMETER

An instrument for measuring the intensity of a magnetic field

ELECTRODYNAMIC AMMETER

Instrument which measures the current passing through a fixed coil and a movable coil connected in series by balancing the torque on the movable coil (resulting from the magnetic field of the fixed coil) against that of a spiral spring.

CONDUCTOMETER

An instrument designed to measure thermal conductivity; in particular, one that compares the rates at which different rods transmit heat.

HYGROMETER

Instrument used to measure degree of moisture in the atmosphere.

MAGNETIC SEPARATOR

A separator that uses a magnetic field to attract and hold ferromagnetic particles.

ELECTRON-BEAM CHANNELING

The technique of transporting high-energy, high-current electron beams from an accelerator to a target through a region of high-pressure gas by creating a path through the gas where the gas density may be temporarily reduced; the gas may be ionized; or a current may flow whose magnetic field focuses the electron beam on the target.
