  • Anotace:
    In this paper, we present research, development, calibration and characterization of a novel concept of a digitally compensated, low-noise magnetometer based on anisotropic magnetoresistance sensors that is suitable for space applications. The main idea of the design was to reduce the number of precise analog components while using the digital signal processing power available in a modern microcontroller. Our most recent effort targeted lowering power consumption, enhancement of radiation hardness and overall improvement of the parameters. The principle of operation is presented in detail, along with a detailed description of the instrumentation used to characterize the real instrument, including its noise, linearity, and temperature stability in the range of -20 to +70 °C. The results of total ionizing dose (TID) testing at a gamma-ray irradiation facility are discussed at the complete magnetometer and part levels. This is an extended version of a paper presented at I2MTC 2020 that contains the results of a second radiation test done with a slightly modified design. The instrument worked well throughout the entire irradiation session (TID of 1.05 kGy over 72 hours), and the stability of main parameters was very good (50 pT/Gy offset and 1 ppm/Gy sensitivity stability).

    In this paper, we present research and development regarding a novel concept of a digitally compensated, low-noise magnetometer based on anisotropic magnetoresistance sensors that is suitable for space applications. The central idea of the design is to reduce the number of precise analog components while using the digital signal processing power available in a modern microcontroller. Our most recent effort targeted lowering power consumption and overall improvement of the parameters. Only commercial off-the-shelf components are used in the concept reported here, keeping costs manageable even for low-budget CubeSat missions. The principle of operation is presented in detail, along with a full characterization of a real instrument, including its noise, linearity, and temperature stability. The results of Total Ionizing Dose testing at a gamma-ray irradiation facility are discussed at the complete magnetometer and part levels; they suggest the instrument's good potential.

Cross-field Effect in a Triaxial AMR Magnetometer with Vector and Individual Compensation of a Measured Magnetic Field

  • DOI: 10.1109/TMAG.2016.2617121

  • Anotace:
    Magnetic field sensors based on anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) are widely used in many scientific and industrial applications. The AMR sensor sensitivity is superior to Hall probes and size and power consumption is superior to fluxgates. However, the noise properties and temperature stability of AMR sensors are typically worse than for fluxgates. These properties define the typical applications - less precise vectorial or gradient measurements of the magnetic field within <±1 mT range. AMR sensors are typically calibrated for sensitivity, offset, and orthogonality errors. However, there is another important source of error - sensitivity to the magnetic field applied in the perpendicular direction to the measurement axis. This so-called cross-field error is inherent to AMR sensors and can influence the measurements significantly. Flipping (set/reset pulses) and closed-loop operation of the sensor can reduce the cross-field error. In our paper, we present a novel approach of using full vectorial compensation of the measured magnetic field resulting in a complete elimination of the cross-field effect. The vectorial compensation provided superior results over alternative approaches that were also evaluated.

  • Pracoviště: Katedra měření
  • Anotace:
    The case of a finite base gradiometer with ideal sensors is considered, then influence of finite-size sensing elements is modeled and finally, comparison with experimental results obtained with two ring-core fluxgates and two AMR sensors are evaluated. Some of the effects found may be counterintuitive and especially in the close proximity of dipole source, the gradient cannot be further modeled by simplified uniaxial approximation because of the sensor size. Full Biot-Savart field model was considered in those cases.

    A typical commercially available magnetoresistive sensor, and particularly an anisotropic magnetoresistive sensor, employs a full bridge of the Wheatstone type formed by two complementary magnetoresistive elements in each branch. It can be shown that, theoretically speaking, the offset is temperature independent when the bridge is supplied with a constant voltage (but the sensitivity in that case is temperature dependent), and the sensitivity is temperature independent when the bridge is supplied with a constant current (but the offset in that case is temperature dependent).

Fluxgate Sensor and Real Operating-mode B-H Curve

  • Pracoviště: Katedra měření
  • Anotace:
    The core materials are usually characterized in well-defined modes. Either static B-H loops are measured or dynamic loops are recorded with sinewave H or better sinewave B waveform as required by IEC standard. Unfortunately, neither of these represents well the real operating conditions in fluxgate core, especially when the fluxgate is tuned and excitation current peak value is optimized by appropriate capacitor. Dynamic B-H loops can be recorded by digital acquisition and signal processing in real operating conditions.

Magnetopneumography - Incorporation of Optical Position Reference

  • Pracoviště: Katedra měření
  • Anotace:
    Magnetopneumography is a non-invasive method for estimation of amount and spatial distribution of ferromagnetic dusts deposited in lungs of metal workers. Our setup consisting of a set of fluxgate probes is sensitive enough to detect remanent fields of small amounts of previously magnetized magnetite dust. Utilization of a smart camera and retro-reflective optical markers makes the scanning independent of operator's errors and helps to scan the magnetic field independently of the actual subject body position on the bed.

Magnetopneumography - Real-World Phantom Inversion

  • Pracoviště: Katedra měření
  • Anotace:
    Magnetopneumography needs inversion of weak magnetic data in order to estimate amount and spatial distribution of ferromagnetic dusts deposited in lungs of metal workers. Our continuously improved setup is sensitive enough to detect remanent fields of small amounts (<8 mg) of magnetite dust. Fluxgate probes as the best room-temperature sensors are used. Estimation of distribution of 35 unit cubes of a simplified phantom based on SVD calculated calibration inverse matrix is demonstrated here. We still cope with background noise and positioning errors that severely limit the results. Preparation of electronic calibration phantom should enable successful inversion of more complex sources.

  • Anotace:
    We use fluxgate magnetometer for measuring remanent field of contaminated volume (current experiments are mostly on phantoms). For earlier experiments we used simple 6-channel magnetometer with improvised probe holder and we used multiple 1st order gradients. However, geometrical and other instabilities forced us to upgrade both the mechanical assembly and the fluxgate electronics. The environmental noise from relatively close sources is apparent even in 1st order gradients and thus - now with more stable electronics - we evaluated 2nd order gradients in order to obtain better signal.

  • Anotace:
    In inversion of magnetic data the key task is the acquisition of sufficient number of measurements and suppression of the field variations in them. In Magnetopneumography (MPG) we scan very weak magnetic fields of ferromagnetic dust deposited in the lungs of affected workers in ordinary non-shielded lab. Variations of the background field during scanning time may bias the inversion. We present an innovative mathematical technique that enables by means of fitting to model equations to condense the information acquired and to eliminate the bias background fields. Six coaxially aligned fluxgates measuring five gradients are used for scanning of the field maps. The alignment and further errors given by non-homogeneity of outer field in the measurement area are the main limits of this method.
