One method to characterize the radiated microwave field from a high-power microwave (HPM) source is to measure the radiated high-level electromagnetic field in several locations at a high sampling rate registering the frequency time dependence, thus being able to determine the radiated pattern and mode. A complete free-field measurement system for measuring the magnetic field component in high-level electromagnetic fields has been developed at FOI. The system consists of a B-dot sensor and a balun, both designed and constructed at FOI. The B-dot sensor is designed as two cylindrical loop sensors with differential output. The balun is a microstrip design etched on a dual sided PTFE circuit board. Complete systems have been calibrated at SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden. A method to analyze the data from the free-field systems has been developed.
