The goal of the Mu2e experiment at Fermilab is to search for charged-lepton flavor violation by looking for neutrino-less muon to electron conversion in the field of the nucleus. The Mu2e experimental apparatus utilizes a complex magnetic field in the muon generation and momentum and charge selection process. Precise knowledge of the magnetic field is crucial. It is planned to map the solenoid field with calibrated three-dimensional (3-D) Hall probes up to 10-5 accuracy. This article describes a new design of a Hall probe calibration system that will be used to calibrate 3-D Hall probes to better than 10-5 accuracy for the Mu2e solenoid field mapping system.
