Abstract: In this paper, we give an overview of the research on fluxgate magnetometers carried out in Spain. In particular we focus in the development of the planar-type instruments. We summarize the fabrication processes and signal processing developments as well as their use in complex systems and space.
Keywords: magnetometry; fluxgate; planar fluxgate; signal processing; double in-phase demodulation; automatic identification; automatic guidance; RFID; space applications
