Abstract : This report covers primarily the period from May 15,1997 to July 25,1997 - from month 10 through month 11 and into month 12 of the program. This period has concentrated on fabricating tunneling bridge sensors with on-chip bias coils, developing the test equipment needed to test sensors at 10(exp-8) Gauss, and developing a drive/sense scheme which can be used to overcome the effects of 1/f noise. As we near the end of the first year of the program, pinned tunneling sensors are in process which will be used to make a hybrid circuit (breadboard) version of the sensor.
