In this paper, a prototype solenoid magnet was designed and fabricated to be used in Micro Wave Discharge Ion Sources in the Turkish Accelerator Center Proton Accelerator Project and magnetic field mapping was performed with an experiment and also investigation was conducted by using finite element method. For this, a water-cooled electromagnet was designed and fabricated from 1010 steel with a thickness of 10 cm. Magnetic field sensor was connected to a new designed robotic arm and 2570 magnetic field intensity measurements were performed in the core of magnet with the size of 20 cm diameter and 10 cm depth of cylinder. The robotic arm was driven by three stepper motors and the measurement was automated with the Arduino physical programming platform. The UGN3503U Hall Effect sensor was used to measure the magnetic field and for the data processing ROOT was used. The magnetic field distribution inside the core of the solenoid magnet was investigated by using the finite element method. The commercial version of The Flexible Generalized Minimal Residual method (FGMRES) solver (built-in COMSOL) was used for the numerical part and magnetic field was calculated and compared with experiment to correlate simulation accuracy of this study.
