In the paper we present an analytical calculation method for determination of the sensitivity of a pulse field magnetometer working with a first order gradiometer. Our considerations here are especially focused on a case of magnetic moment measurements of very small samples. Derived in the work analytical equations allow for a quick estimation of the magnetometer’s sensitivity and give also the way to its calibration using the sample simulation coil method. On the base of the given in the paper calculations we designed and constructed a simple homemade magnetometer and performed its sensitivity calibration.
