A magnetometer is a scientific device that measures the strength, direction, and orientation of a magnetic field. It is used in a variety of fields such as geology, archaeology, mineral exploration, navigation, and aerospace. Magnetometers are also used in consumer electronics, such as smartphones and laptop computers, to detect device orientation and provide location services. There are various types of magnetometers available, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Fluxgate magnetometers measure magnetic field changes using a ferromagnetic core, whereas proton precession magnetometers measure magnetic fields using the frequency of processing protons. Magnetometers that are optically pumped, magnetoresistive sensors, and SQUID magnetometers are examples of other types of magnetometers such as gaussmeters.
