The increasing demand of miniaturization, low power consumption, compactness and portability of the equipment has urged the sensors’ size to be the only selection criterion for a magnetometer. Applications, such as magnetic micro-beads, micromagnetic scanning, non-destructive testing and medical applications like magnetic drug delivery dictate the requirement of magnetic sensors that are smaller in size and own single side measurement capability. To cater those needs, it is utmost important to explore and apply new principles governing nano-scale science and state-of-the-art fabrication technology. This chapter showcases the recent advances in magnetic field planar sensors that could be used to measure magnetic field with the privilege of non-destructive measurements and single side access to the sample.
