Dr. Aktham Asfour is currently an associate professor at the University Grenoble Alpes (UGA), France. He received the Engineering and the PhD degrees from Grenoble INP (Institute of Engineering) in 1998 and 2002, respectively. Since 2010, he has been carrying out his research in Grenoble Electrical Engineering Lab (G2Elab). His main interests include magnetic sensors and applications as well as the systems of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at very- and ultralow magnetic field, including portable and mobile systems. Between 2004 and 2010, he has been with the Grenoble Institute of Neuroscience (GIN) in Grenoble where he also carried out research in radiofrequency coils and electronics for the NMR and MRI of hyperpolarized gases.

This book presents an overview of some trends of research and development in the area of magnetic sensors, from materials to applications. A first focus is made on the topics of amorphous micro-wires and thin-film structures and their fabrication, characterization, and application for magnetic sensors based on the effects of giant magneto-impedance (GMI) and magneto-elasticity. A second section deals with the magneto-impedance (MR) sensors, from the development of new materials to sensor implementation and applications. Intended for readers wishing to acquire understanding of the current trends in these areas and comprehension of the issues and the potential of applications of these sensors, this book addresses exciting topics in this field.
