Spintronic Organic Thin-Film Magnetic Field Sensor (image) University of Utah Share Print E-Mail Caption An inexpensive and highly accurate "spintronic" magnetic field sensor developed at the University of Utah is shown here. The entire device, on a printed circuit board, measures about 0.8 inches by 1.2 inches. But the part that actually detects magnetic fields is the reddish-orange thin-film semiconductor - essentially "plastic paint" - near the center-right of the device.
