Abstract : A thin film magnetometer is disclosed, adapted to detect changes in the earth's magnetic field, but which is insensitive to apparent changes in the field as result from spin of the magnetometer relative to the field. Insensitivity to spin is obtained by forming the thin film sensor as a loop having a plane symmetry in which the axis of spin lies. (Author)
