We present a new method for production of magnetic microwire with helical anisotropy. Coil-less fluxgate sensors are generally composed of a bimetallic wire excited by an alternating current; in order for the wire to work in coil-less fluxgate mode, the magnetic layer of the wire needs to have helical anisotropy. So far, we have achieved such anisotropy by mechanically twisting the wire. However, this method has some disadvantages for practical applications, mainly regarding the sensor stability. We propose a method that provides helical anisotropy by applying a helical field during the electrodeposition: this is achieved by the superposition of a longitudinal field generated by a Helmholtz coil and a circumferential field produced by a direct current flowing through the core of the wire during electrodeposition.
