A6.2 - An integrated Nine-dimensional Hall-Gradient-Sensor

Michael Hackner, Hans-Peter Hohe & Markus Stahl-Offergeld
Magnetic sensors for position detection are used in many products and apparatuses. In most cases the sensor, which is used to solve the problem, can only detect one single mechanical dimension (1D) of the magnetic field or flux-denisity. But generally, mechanical movements consist of 3 degrees of translatory and 3 degrees of rotary freedom. Temperature and external fields are further quantities, which may influence the measurements. So, at least 8 independent measures have to be...
