Giant Magneto Impedance Sensors Based on Microwire and Sandwiched Structures for Non Destructive Testing Applications
Abstract:The ability of new Magneto-Impedance (MI) sensors having a giant effect (GMI) intended for Non Destructive Testing (NDT) is reported. The sensors are based on Co-rich amorphous microwires or thin film nanocrystalline sandwiched structures exhibiting high MI effect. Sensitivities-to-field around a few hundred of %/mT are obtained in microwires and sandwiched FeSiBCuNb/Cu/FeSiBCuNb structures. Real and imaginary components of GMI ratio are also investigated and discussed.
