Abstract

We present a comprehensive noise model for an electromechanical resonator that is utilized as a magnetic field sensor. The cantilever-type sensor is coated with a magnetostrictive film that exhibits a change in elastic modulus E with a magnetic field and therefore detunes the resonator-the so-called delta-E effect. The noise model contains all relevant noise sources from the operational electronics, the wiring, and the sensor itself. Measurements show good agreement up to a certain excitation voltage, where an additional dominant noise source appears. It is identified as originating from the magnetic film. With the results of the model, the operational parameters of such sensors are discussed. The model predicts that the limit of detection at 10 Hz for the present sensors can be improved to 60 pT/(Hz)1/2 if the magnetic noise is eliminated.
