World’s most sensitive and energy efficient nano-magnetic sensor

NUS CA2DM, one of the world leaders in 2D materials research is pushing the boundary in magnetic field detection and looking for industry partners to develop world’s most sensitive magnetic sensor and the first one based on 2D hetero-structures. This sensor has broad applicationsĀ for automation, inspection, biomedical-imaging and other industrial applications.

The active core sensing area of this sensor is made of graphene and boron nitride hetero-structure. It reacts strongly to magnetic field with magneto-resistance change as high as 10^5 % higher than any AMR, GMR and TMR sensors. In addition, it can be used in wide range of magnetic field with extremely low power consumption of 10 nW.
