Magnetic Field Sensor Based on the Domain Wall Nucleation and Propagation
In this paper we present a magnetic field sensor based on the domain wall nucleation and propagation process in glass covered amorphous wires. The sensor utilizes the Sixtus and Tonks apparatus. A linear characteristic is reported to magnetic fields with direction opposite to the driving field, while to fields with the same direction; a monotonic, though inappropriate for sensing applications, respond is shown.
