Abstract: We outline a diagnostic technique for stellar magnetic fields based on spectropolarimetry of H Balmer lines. We present preliminary results of a survey of magnetic stars in open clusters carried out with FORS1 at the ESO VLT, aimed at examining the characteristics of the magnetic fields of intermediatemass stars as they evolve onto and across the main sequence.
