Easily realize measurement with high accuracy on a research laboratory level
The high-sensitivity magnetic sensor currently being developed and investigated features small dimensions, low cost, and room temperature operation capability allowing measurement of a type previously only possible in a research laboratory. With the Nivio xMR sensor, the application scope for such measurements widens dramatically. This may include for example small-scale medical institutions which may be able to accurately assess the health state of more patients.
Furthermore, it is not only humans for whom important information is contained in weak magnetic field fluctuations, but also objects and natural environments. Magnetic field measurements with formerly unavailable high sensitivity will become possible also in applications besides medical and wellness, such as detection of metal foreign objects and mineral exploration. Depending on the application, the new sensor has the potential to trigger problem-solving innovations in various fields.
