Previously, Murakami and Kitsunai applied the idea of equipping the hydraulic cylinder with a stroke sensor based on a magnetoresistor sensor to detect positions [6].
Understanding how polar nanoregions enhance material performance is relevant to the investigation of broad classes of chemically disordered materials beyond relaxor-based ferroelectrics, including shape-memory alloys, colossal magnetoresistors, magnetic semiconductors and some superconductors.
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.
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.
In our previous paper [16] we introduced the methods how to improve the accuracy of the yokeless current transducer (Figure 1) with a circular array of anisotropic magnetoresistors (AMR).
