The magnetic behavior of MicroWires with the high and positive magnetostriction constant is characterized by a rectangular hysteresis loop. A closed curve showing the variation of the magnetic flux density of a ferromagnetic material with the external magnetic field producing it, when this field is changed through a complete cycle.
The MicroWire sensor measurements have no hysteresis (unlike for example Hall sensors), they are linear (see on the diagram) from the principle of the measurement. Linearity is valid up to the highest value of the range. The range can be adjusted to almost any value since the feature of MicroWire’s response (no hysteresis/linearity) works from very low to very high fields. Additionally, there is no temperature dependence on the magnetic response of MicroWire.
