Measurement of electrical resistivity in high magnetic fields by the eddy-current decay method Academic Article uri icon


  • The eddy-current decay method for measurement of electrical resisitivity was successfully used on pure aluminium samples in magnetic fields to 8 T. It was found that the coil system should be supported firmly to prevent any movement or vibration. Probe vibration in a strong magnetic field leads to signal distortion and inaccurate measurements, due to the emf generated by moving the coil windings normal to the magnetic field lines. Thus fixing becomes more important as the field strength increases. © 1989.
