mPhase, in partner with Bell Labs has announced the creation of a tiny magnetometer expected to be as much as 1,000
times more sensitive than
A statement by the company claims a single
sensor will be able to "detect the presence of a soldier carrying a rifle at approximately 150
Bell Labs and mPhase presented this new technology this last week at the MIT Emerging Technologies Showcase. MIT is home to the US Army's Institute
for Soldier Nanotechnology.
I wonder if these could even be used for biometric identification? Given their sensitivity is greater than modern quantum magnetometers, could an
array of these possibly provide a unique identification of an individual based on their resident electromagnetic field?
