A method for measurement of magnetic noise in magnetoimpedance sensing element is proposed. Glass-coated Co-based amorphous microwires with a slightly negative magnetostriction were used as the sensing element. The operation principle of the sensing element was based on the nonlinear off-diagonal magnetoimpedance, when field dependent higher harmonic components appeared in voltage in the pick-up coil wound around the microwire. The magnetic noise for the second harmonic in the pick-up coil voltage was studied. The dependences of the magnetic noise and the signal-to-noise ratio in the sensitive element on the current amplitude were analyzed. The noise performance of the second harmonic in the pick-up coil voltage was compared to that for a flux-gate sensing element.
