Abstract : The patent describes a cryogenic magnetic field gradiometer wherein adjustments of areas presented by a superconducting wire loop, that is confined in a support structure within a cryogenic environment, are adjusted mechanically through wire positioning elements operated by a plurality of parallel shafts extending to the exterior of the environment. In one embodiment the positioning elements are cams that cooperate to position portions of a wire loop, while in another form bell crank levers are used.
