Could a tiny Chinese magnetic sensor be up to the huge task of tracking submarines?

Chinese researchers have developed a compact sensor that can detect extremely weak magnetic fields and one day might be used to track submarines or act as a backup navigation system.The sensor, an atomic magnetometer developed by Professor Gu Sihong and his colleagues at the Wuhan Institute of Physics and Mathematics, can fit into a capsule the size of a bean and operate at room temperature, according to research published in the journal Physical Review Applied.“Using microelectromechanical…
