Magnetic measurement with coils and wires [article]

Accelerator magnets steer particle beams according to the field integrated along the trajectory over the magnet length. Purpose-wound coils measure these relevant parameters with high precision and complement efficiently point-like measurements performed with Hall plates or NMR probes. The rotating coil method gives a complete two-dimensional description of the magnetic field in a series of normal and skew multipoles. The more recent single stretched wire is a reference instrument to measure
