Cover Story (view full-size image): Zhang and Or report a small-scale, standalone, and high-performance magnetoelectric (ME) transverse gradient sensor for the passive, direct, and broadband detection of transverse magnetic field gradients (MFGs) into electrical voltages through the suppression of common-mode ambient noise. The sensor combines the passive and direct ME effect with the MFG-based noise-suppression technique in a pair of magnetically-biased, electrically-shielded, and mechanically-enclosed ME composites arranged with a transverse orientation and an axial baseline to simultaneously exhibit high detection sensitivity, a strong common-mode magnetic field noise rejection rate, small input–output nonlinearity, and low gradient noise. This transverse gradient sensor opens up opportunities to develop full tensor gradient sensors by combining it with axial gradient sensors. View this paper
