Theory of microinduction measurements

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The authors develop theoretical models for the microinduction sensor which make it possible to better understand the response of the sensor in a wide variety of circumstances. For example, the issues of resolution, depth of investigation, standoff, coil tilt, and effect of Maxwell-Wagner charge accumulation have been clarified. It is shown how the response of the sensor can be estimated with the Born approximation and the geometrical factor theory. The full-wave theory is also considered. In addition, the use of a microinduction sensor as a probe of vertically stratified media is considered.
