Project: Metrology for advanced industrial magnetics

Magnetic sensors are used in industries that require accurate high-resolution data, for example consumer electronics, information and communication technology (ICT), and the car industry. The fast product development in these fields creates an on-going need for advanced magnetic sensors with significantly improved specifications in resolution, reliability and operation temperature among others. An improved understanding of the physical properties of magnetic materials is needed to enable sensor manufacturers to develop advanced anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) sensors that are ultra-small, with low-noise and high-sensitivity, and hence improve electronic measurements leading to more advanced products. This project delivered new calibration facilities and metrology tools and methods, which will enable the European magnetic sensor industry to develop, produce and calibrate advanced magnetic sensors and stay competitive in the global market.
