Abstract

We have designed and fabricated a microelectromechanical device, based on the alternating field gradient concept, to measure surface magnetic field gradient on planets. Its sensitivity is 4 10-4 T/m, which is appropriate for magnetite outcrops and areas with rocks formed at different stages recording geomagnetic field reversals. We present the results obtained with three different prototypes.
