A double-layer Hall-probe array was used to measure the in-plane and the normal component of the induction field near the surface of a superconducting sample. This technique finds applications in measuring the current distribution across the sample and in characterizing the flux creep process in flat samples. Both applications have been demonstrated in a thin YBa2Cu3O7 crystal in the remanent state.
