Abstract:

This report details the work performed in the 1983 fiscal year on a project oriented at producing thin film magnetometers. These sensors will prove to be very economical in mass production because of integrated circuit fabrication techniques used. The device is well characterized and its operation understood. Included in this report are data on its vector nature, linear dynamic range, biased field effects, thermal response and small field response. Finally, an application in ordnance round identification is described. Author
