The characteristics of magnetoresistors with some applications
thesisposted on 08.11.2018 by S.A. Ferris
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
The magnetoresistive effect is explained, and its use in commercial resistors is described. The resistance/displacement characteristic of a magnetoresistor moving in the magnetic field produced by rectangular section polepieces is examined. The factors which affect the linear range are studied and design information for displacement transducers is derived, A technique is developed for determining the pole shape associated with a specified resistance/displacement law. A method of manufacture of the polepieces is evolved and the related problems are discussed. [Continues.]
