Theses Topics

► Analysis of noise in an orthogonal fluxgate for different diameter of the wire core
► Study of the correlation of noise in magnetic microwire with different diameter and how it can help in the development of a low noise gradiometer
► Algorithm for live compensation of local noise due to car traffic on a geomagnetic observatory
