Title: Organic magnetic field sensor

Abstract

An organic, spin-dependent magnetic field sensor (10) includes an active stack (12) having an organic material with a spin-dependence. The sensor (10) also includes a back electrical contact (14) electrically coupled to a back of the active stack (12) and a front electrical contact (16) electrically coupled to a front of the active stack (12). A magnetic field generator (18) is oriented so as to provide an oscillating magnetic field which penetrates the active stack (12).

  • A method is described to provide temperature compensation and self-calibration of a current sensor based on a plurality of magnetic field sensors positioned around a current carrying conductor. A reference magnetic field generated within the current sensor housing is detected by a separate but identical magnetic field sensor and is used to correct variations in the output signal due to temperature variations and aging.

  • A UNLV novel electric/magnetic dot sensor includes a loop of conductor having two ends to the loop, a first end and a second end; the first end of the conductor seamlessly secured to a first conductor within a first sheath; the second end of the conductor seamlessly secured to a second conductor within a second sheath; and the first sheath and the second sheath positioned adjacent each other. The UNLV novel sensor can be made by removing outer layers in a segment of coaxial cable, leaving a continuous link of essentially uncovered conductor between two coaxial cable legs.
  • A well mapping apparatus comprises: a magnetic field sensing device whose output is proportional to a local magnetic field vector, an acceleration sensing device whose output is proportional to a local gravi
  • This patent describes a sensor for use with a source of electromagnetic energy for indicating the presence of a low magnetic field with a sensitivity of at least 10{sup {minus} 10} tesla. It comprises: a sensing element consisting essentially of a high critical temperature superconductor ceramic oxide material without the need for further processing, said critical temperature being above 77{degrees}; means for cooling the sensing element to a temperature below the critical temperature of the superconductor material whereby the sensing element becomes superconducting; means for applying electromagnetic energy from the source to the sensing element whereby a first portion ofmore » the applied energy is absorbed by the sensing element; means for detecting the amount of the energy absorbed by the sensing element; and means modulating the sensing element for providing a reference signal for phase-sensitive detection and for biasing the electromagnetic energy absorption characteristics of the sensing element to a predetermined absorption reference value.« less
