I think we are all very well familiarized with the classical voltmeter. Classical voltmeter has two conducting wires that bring two potentials into the box. In the box we have well controlled conditions, in which potential difference (voltage) starts current, and current through the galvanometer deflects the pointer. Anyways, conducting wires are absolutely necessary by this method in order to bring potentials to the box.
However, a person posted the question, where it was necessary to measure voltage on the ends of the bar in the magnetic field. Of course, as soon as you do that with classical voltmeter, you create a loop and loop can generate additional voltage you simply do not want. So my half-way question is: Is it possible to make a loopless voltage measurement?
Of course, in principle I could imagine such a measurement: I would make an electric field probe and put it into the bar, measuring electric field along the bar. After I've obtained electric field in the every point of the bar, I could calculate voltage by integrating electric field between bar's ends. However, this seems to be very difficult measurement and conditions are not really controlled.
My final question is: Is there any other loopless conventional method of measurement available?
