Title: Microfabricated Atomic Magnetometers
Published: April 15, 2013
Abstract: In this chapter, we discuss miniaturized atomic magnetometers, and the technology and applications relevant to this somewhat unusual direction in magnetometer research and development. By ,miniaturizedŠ, we mean, in addition to their size, magnetometers that have associated desirable qualities such as low power consumption and low cost. Together with the high sensitivity usually obtained from the use of atoms, these properties result in magnetic sensors that fill a unique application space.
