Principle of MHD sensor for angular velocity measurement

MHD sensors (magnetohydrodynamic sensors) are used for precision measurements of angular velocities in inertial navigation systems such as in aerospace engineering) .[1] Accuracy improves with the size of the sensor. The sensor is capable of surviving in harsh environments.[2]
