Summary

These data are the basis of the figures in the manuscript "A Wideband magnetoresistive sensor for monitoring dynamic fault slip in laboratory fault friction experiments". That report was the result of an investigation of a non-contact, wideband method of sensing dynamic fault slip in laboratory geophysical experiments which employs an inexpensive magnetoresistive sensor, a small neodymium rare earth magnet, and user built application specific wideband signal conditioning electronics. The magnetoresistive sensor generates a voltage proportional to the changing angles of magnetic flux lines, generated by differential motion or rotation of the near-by magnet, through the sensor. The performance of an array of these sensors compares favorably [...]

Purpose

These data were collected to determine the performance of a magnetoresistive sensor to make measurements of rapid fault slip in laboratory geophysical experiments. A sensor tasked with this measurement function needs to have a wideband frequency response, accuracy, and resolution measured in microns of fault slip. These data document the performance of this magnetoresistive linear position sensor, while being tested with this task.
