Multielement magnetic probe using commercial chip inductors
A 60-element magnetic probe array has been constructed using miniature commercial chip inductors. The array consists of twenty clusters of three coils each mounted on a linear fixture. The coils are oriented in orthogonal directions to yield three-dimensional information. The array has been used to investigate magnetic properties of spheromaks.
