Abstract

In the preceeding paper on this subject a method was described which enabled the measurement of magnetic susceptibilities in constant magnetic fields. In the present paper it is demonstrated that the application of an alternating magnetic field instead of a constant field is advantageous.

Many environmental disturbances are eliminated, the measurement time is highly reduced and the amplitude of the magnetizing field can be brought back to 60 Oersted at which fields the sensitivity is still a few percent for diamagnetic substances.
