New sensitive quick-response and low-power-consumption micromagnetic sensors, namely, the magnetoimpedance (MI) sensor utilizing the MI effect in zero-magnetostrictive amorphous wires and the stress-impedance (SI) sensor utilizing the SI effect in negative-magnetostrictive amorphous wires, are presented. The field detection resolution of the CMOS IC-type MI sensor is about I μOe for ac fields and 100 μOe for a dc field with the full scale of ±3 Oe using a 2- or 0.5-mm-long amorphous wire with 30- or 15-μm diameter as a sensor head. The possible response speed is about 1 MHz, and the power consumption is about 10 mW. The magnetoimpedance integrated circuit (MIIC sensor was developed in 2002 by the Aichi Steel Company, Japan, for mass production. The stress detection resolution of the SI sensor is about 0.1 Gal in acceleration Sensing, which is suitable for detection of microdisplacement in the medical field. More than 100 themes are proposed for application of MI and SI sensors.
