Magneto-optical (MO) imaging using MO imaging plates is a magnetic imaging technique that enables real-time measurements and is expected to be used for non-destructive testing and for observing the magnetic domains of magnetic materials. In this study, we propose a quantitative measurement method for three dimensional (3D) magnetic field vector measurements. The x- and y-components of the magnetic fields within the measured plane are calculated from the measured z-component by using a signal transformation method based on magnetic field transfer functions. Furthermore, the magnetic field distributions at different heights are also obtained from a one-shot image. In this paper, 3D magnetic field vector measurements are demonstrated for ferrite magnets and an electrical steel sheet.
