anisotropic magnetoresistance

anisotropic magnetoresistance

[‚an·ə·sə¦trō·pik ‚mag‚ned·ō·ri′sis·təns]
(solid-state physics)
A type of magnetoresistance displayed by all metallic magnetic materials, which arises because conduction electrons have more frequent collisions when they move parallel to the magnetization in the material than when they move perpendicular to it.

This combination of benefits is unprecedented, and it is not achievable using any other existing magnetic sensor technologies, including Anisotropic Magnetoresistance (AMR), Giant Magnetoresistance (GMR), or the Hall Effect.
Anisotropic Magnetoresistance occurs in certain ferrous materials and can be applied as a thin strip to become a resistive element.
Transmission anisotropy arises from anisotropic magnetoresistance inherent to ferromagnets.
