Abstract: X-ray binary systems are very popular objects for astrophysical investigations. Compact objects in those systems are neutron stars, white dwarfs, and black holes. Neutron stars and white dwarfs can have intrinsic magnetic fields. There is a well known theorem about the absence of intrinsic magnetic fields of black holes. But a magnetic field can exist in the accretion disk around a black hole. Here we present the real estimates of the magnetic field strength at the radius of the innermost stable orbit in the accretion disk of a stellar mass black hole.
