The irony of the magnet system for Kibble balances -- a review
Stephan Schlamminger, Shisong Lo
The magnet system is an essential component in the Kibble balance, supplying the magnetic flux that plays a vital role as the geometric factor $Bl$. Ironically, the $Bl$ factor cancels out and does not appear in the final Kibble equation. Nevertheless, care must be taken to design and build the magnet system because the cancellation is perfect if the $Bl$ is the same in both modes, the weighing and velocity mode. This review provides the knowledge necessary to build a magnetic circuit for the Kibble balance. In addition, it discusses the design considerations, parameter optimization, practical adjustment to the final performance evaluation, and an assessment of systematic uncertainties associated with the magnet system.
