magnetic multipole

[mag′ned·ik ′məl·tə‚pōl]
(electromagnetism)
One of a series of types of static or oscillating distributions of magnetization, which is a magnetic multipole of order 2; the electric and magnetic fields produced by a magnetic multipole of order 2 n are equivalent to those of two magnetic multipoles of order 2 n-1of equal strength but opposite sign, separated from each other by a short distance.
