gauss meter

Materials science; Magnetics

An instrument used to measure the instantaneous intensity value of magnetic induction, B, usually measured in Gauss (C.G.S.).


Materials science; Magnetics

The unit of magnetomotive force, F, in the C.G.S. system.


Materials science; Magnetics

Indicates the change in magnetic strength between points measured at different distances perpendicular to the magnetic field.

hysteresis loop

Materials science; Magnetics

A plot of magnetizing force versus resultant magnetization (also called a B/H curve) of the material as it is successively magnetized to saturation, demagnetized, magnetized in ...

induction (B)

Materials science; Magnetics

The magnetic flux per unit area of a section normal to the direction of flux. Measured in Gauss, in the C.G.S. system of units.

intrinsic coercive force

Materials science; Magnetics

Intrinsic coercive force indicates a materials' resistance to demagnetization. It is equal to the demagnetizing force which reduces the intrinsic induction, Bi, in the material to ...

intrinsic coercive force (Hci)

Materials science; Magnetics

Measurement of magnetic materials inherent ability to resist self demagnetization.
