Abstract:

This report covers primarily the period from May 15,1997 to July 25,1997 - from month 10 through month 11 and into month 12 of the program. This period has concentrated on fabricating tunneling bridge sensors with on-chip bias coils, developing the test equipment needed to test sensors at 10exp-8 Gauss, and developing a drivesense scheme which can be used to overcome the effects of 1f noise. As we near the end of the first year of the program, pinned tunneling sensors are in process which will be used to make a hybrid circuit breadboard version of the sensor.
