An optical method is proposed for the calibration of pulsed magnetic fields using photoluminescence from synthetic diamond. Generally, the pulsed magnetic field profile is reconstructed by measuring the pick-up voltage in a small coil with an effective area that needs to be known accurately. A useful method to calibrate this area is presented using the 1.4040 eV optical transition at the 1.4 eV Ni-related centre in diamond. The field value is calculated from the Zeeman splitting of the optical lines using the g-factor previously characterized by electron spin resonance. Numerous advantages of the method presented are discussed.
