How a Halbach Array Works in Circumferential and Planar Arrays


In our previous TechTalk article about Halbach Arrays, we discussed what a Halbach Array might be composed of and why these arrays are useful. But how do these arrays create a magnetic field, and how are these fields used?

In this second installment of our four-part series explaining Halbach Arrays, we will look at the field geometries of the two most common Halbach Array orientations and debunk a few common misconceptions about how these magnetic fields are used and function.

Did You Know?

Without proper design considerations, your magnet will fail. High temperatures, other magnetic fields and aggressive environments can cause magnets to fail.
