For further development and optimization of novel uncooled magnetoelectric (ME) sensors, a better understanding of spectral power distribution and signal strength of nerve signals is of high interest. For obtaining information on these signal properties, Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) measurements were performed at the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Berlin. Signal amplitudes were subject-dependent and ranged from 17 fT to 60 fT in a frequency range from 100 Hz to 1 kHz. The required SQUID averaging time was in the range of minutes, while for current ME sensors significantly longer averaging times are expected to be necessary.
