Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A high-temperature superconducting first-order axial gradiometer with thick film YBa2Cu3O7-delta pick-up loops inductively coupled to a thin film YBa2Cu3O7-delta superconducting quantum interference device magnetometer has been designed, fabricated and characterized. The gradiometer has a baseline of 79 mm, an estimated intrinsic system balance of 1:480 for uniform axial magnetic fields and an estimated axial magnetic field gradient sensitivity of 70 fT/(cm root Hz) at 1 kHz, in magnetic shielding.
