dc.description.abstract <p>A magnetic field gradient measuring device, which uses the Hall effect in germanium, has been constructed. The field sensitive element is a bar of germanium 1 mm by 1 mm by 12 mm with two sets of Hall leads attached 2 mm either side of its center. One hundred cycle alternating current flows in the long direction of the bar. In a magnetic field two 100 cycle Hall voltages are obtained. These voltages, which are proportional to the magnetic field strength at two points of the field 4 mm apart, are subtracted to give an output directly proportional to the magnetic field gradient. The instrument will also measure field strengths and relative gradients. The instrument was tested in a calculable magnetic field produced by step pole pieces. Gradients from 5 gauss/inch to 500 gauss/inch in magnetic fields below 5000 gauss were measured. The usefulness of the instrument is still uncertain owing to errors caused by excessive field dependence of the gradient voltage.</p>
