Weak Magnetic Fields Sensing Using Soft Ferrite Nanoparticles and MEMS

Authors: S.E. Lyshevski

Affilation: Rochester Institute of Technology, United States

Pages: 398 - 401

Keywords: magnetic field, sensing, ferrite nanoparticles, MEMS

We perform the feasibility analysis of sensing weak magnetic fields by using soft ferrite nanoparticles embedded in molecular complexes. The sensing mechanisms are based on the deflection of molecular complexes and induced strain due to the varying magnetic force. The proposed premise can be relevant in analysis of sensing weak magnetic fields in biological systems. The feasibility analysis of proof-of-concept solid (silicon) and hybrid microdevices are documented. The fabrication of various soft ferrites are reported.
