Abstract:

THIS HIGHLY ACTIVE METALLIC GLASS (METGLAS) MATERIAL HAS FEATURES WHICH MAKE IT ATTRACTIVE AS A TRANSDUCTION MECHANISM FOR ACCELEROMETERS AND DIRECTIONAL HYDROPHONES. UNDER PHASE I, A SINGLE-CHANNEL MINIATURIZED ACCELEROMETER PROTOTYPE WITH EXTENDED LOW-FREQUENCY CAPABILITY WILL BE DEVELOPED, FABRICATED AND EVALUATED, UTILIZING METALLIC GLASS AS THE TRANSDUCTION MATERIAL. THE SENSING OF MOTION IS ACHIEVED THROUGH LARGE CHANGES IN THE PERMEABILITY OF THE MATERIAL AS A RESULT OF SMALL OPPOSITE STRAINS ON TWO SURFACES OF A CANTILEVER STRUCTURE. THIS CHANGE IN PERMEABILITY CAUSES A CORRESPONDING CHANGE IN THE VOLTAGE OF THE SURROUNDING COIL WHEN THE SYSTEM IS BIASED BY AN ADDITIONAL AC CARRIER MAGNETIC FIELD.
