Under the contract, NVE will be developing devices incorporating its unique Giant Magnetoresistor
(GMR) "spintronics" materials, which are made of exotic metals as thin as a few atoms.
The sensors use NVE's patented Giant Magnetoresistor
(GMR) elements embedded in a conventional integrated circuit.
Pegasus, EMCORE's package-ready device foundry, is currently fabricating InSb-based magnetoresistor
sensors for General Motors.
Hong added, This insight into how lattice vibrations can control phase stability in transition-metal oxides is needed to improve the performance of many multifunctional materials, including colossal magnetoresistors
, superconductors and ferroelectrics.
Smilie (8) used two magnetoresistors
(devices whose electrical resistance depends on the local magnetic field), one at either end of the magnet in a jamjar magnetometer, to derive a voltage which depends on the magnet's position and can be displayed on a volt meter or recorded by a computer.
He then examines galvanomagnetic effects and the basic properties of Hall plates and magnetoresistors
, Hall magnetic sensors, and Hall devices as means for characterizing semiconductors.
