Printed-Circuit (PC) quadrupoles and dipoles have been designed
and developed for focusing and bending a space-charge dominated electron
beam in the University of Maryland Electron Ring (UMER), currently under
development. Due to the rather small aspect ratio (length/diameter
<1) of the magnets, the field quality, especially the nonlinear
fringe field, has been a concern for the success of the UMER project.
Extensive theoretical and experimental studies of the field structure of
the magnets have been performed. Simple and precise methods for the
magnetic field measurements of the PC magnets have been developed. In
this paper, we present the various techniques and results of the
measurements. The magnetic multipole components of quadrupoles and
dipoles are determined from measurements with a long rotating coil. In
addition, the integrated field of quadrupoles is obtained with the
pulsed, taut-wire method. A comparison between the experimental results,
theoretical analysis and calculation with a magnetics code, MAG-PC, is
