N2 - The magnetic field distributions of an HTS bulk magnet system were precisely measured between the face-to-face 3.4-T magnetic poles. After the activation by 5-T field cooling magnetization, the magnetic flux density has reached the value of 2.26 T at the center of the 34-mm gap. The sum of the local magnetic fields generated from each magnetic pole coincides with the local field strength in the gap. We estimated the homogeneity of the magnetic flux densities of Bz and By, which were measured at various positions along z and y-axes in the center portion of the 60-mm gap. Since the magnetic flux density becomes smooth with increasing distance, we obtained the smallest distribution range of 123 ppm of Bz = 1.62 T at the center of the gap as for Bz. On the other, as for By, the smallest distribution range of 1125 ppm of Bz = 1.20 T was obtained at z = 1.7 mm distant from the center point. Since there must exist a certain plane which has no vector components along the radius direction at the center of the gap, the closer the z-positions come to the null point, the more homogeneous the field distribution becomes.
