A Hall probe is a sophisticated instrument used to measure magnetic field strength. It is a thin film that measures the transverse voltage when it is placed in the magnetic field. The Hall probe works on the Hall effect that was discovered by the scientist E.H. Hall in 1879.Continue Reading
The measurement of large magnetic fields on the order of Tesla is often done by the Hall probe, as claimed by Hyperphysics, a website hosted by the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Georgia State University.
Hall probe is a metal strip carrying electric current from left to right, as stated in Scientific American. This probe works as follows:
