A dc torsional magnetometer for use in high magnetic fields is described. With a resolution of 10^–12 J/T at 5 T and excellent rejection of background moments, this device has been used to study the de Haas–van Alphen effect in two-dimensional electron systems. This resolution is about 100 times that obtained with a commercially available superconducting quantum interference device magnetometer. The device is useful over a wide temperature range including that below 1 K.
