The aim of this school is:
- to give the state of the art and a
large overview of high sensitivity magnetic sensors (physics,
performances, noise, properties...) in an open or closed environments with
their classical and less-classical applications;
- to analyze
their performances in order to specify comparison rules and help
researchers to make a proper choice of sensors for various applications.
Nine and four years ago, in June 1997 and October 2002, two schools
entitled "Highly Sensitive Magnetometers: Sensors and Applications" were
organized at "Les houches" and "PortBail" France, respectively. School
received over 50 to 70 participants (students, researchers and
engineers) coming from more than ten countries.
Some progresses in highly sensitive devices and new perspectives have
been reported since the last meeting. Finally, because there is a great
number of new or old applications using highly sensitive magnetometer
with various operating conditions, we believe that it's time to the 3rd
school dedicated to highly sensitive magnetometers and theirs
applications. Also, we could check their performances (dynamic range,
noise, bandwidth, spatial resolution...) in order to compare their
(intrinsic and extrinsic) performances.
It should be directed both towards researchers in the field of improved
or new magnetic sensors and towards end-users who work with highly
