Description

A high precision superconducting levitation system for gravity measurement has been developed which used the levitation of a superconducting sphere by the magnetic field of two superconducting coils. The magnetic levitation is designed to provide independent adjustment of the levitating force and the force gradient. A GM cryocooler is employed to cooldown the system. This article reviews the construction and operating characteristics of the system. The test results show that the system is allowed at least 10-10g sensitivity.
