In this letter we determine the theoretical limit of the magnetic-field sensitivity of the flux-gate magnetometer. In order to do so, we have developed a model for the white noise of a flux gate based on the fundamental dynamics of the magnetic material forming the flux-gate core. Solving this model, we predict that the white noise of a physically realizable flux gate with a volume of
