Summary on Grant Application Form
The potential beneficiaries of the research are wide ranging and include companies interested in the use of RF tags and other low power devices that operate in an environment where they could tap into a changing magnetic field in order to generate electrical power. Other companies, such as those interested in magnetic information storage, could be interested in the materials as a means for detecting the stored information on a magnetic disk. The MoD is likely to be interested in the materials for possible sensors of the buried munitions, submarines etc. Depending on the sensitivity that is ultimately achieved, the materials could find their way into low cost alternatives to SQUIDs for medical sensing. The aim to make the materials fully integrated onto silicon will give this technology a wide potential user base.
