Project: Nano-scale traceable magnetic field measurements

The development of smaller, higher-performance electronic devices demands the measurement of magnetic fields on ever smaller scales. Although magnetic fields at the macro level can be measured accurately and reliably traced back to magnetic reference standards, measurements at the micro and nano level cannot – this is hindering high-tech industries’ ability to conduct the quantitative analysis and quality control needed to develop innovative products. This project will develop European metrology capabilities that build on the achievements of EMRP project EXL04 SpinCal to extend the accurate and traceable measurement of magnetic fields to micrometre and nanometre scales. This will contribute to the international harmonisation of high-resolution magnetic field measurement, and allow European industry to measure and manipulate fields with previously unattainable levels of precision. Industrial users in fields including computing, magnetic sensing and biomedicine will be able to develop new standards in quality control and product performance.
