In the field of measurement nonlinear behavior is typical of a large set of sensors (mechanical, electrical, pneumatic, and so on). In several devices, SQUID and piezoelectric sensors being very well-known examples, the nonlinearity is strictly correlated to the hysteresis phenomenon, which can be described by introducing the quartic double well (QDW) potential in the system model. The analysis addresses the influence of potential characteristics on the performance of hysteretic measuring devices. A Brownian system with a QDW potential is used as a general prototype of hysteretic phenomena. This paper applies to the general class of hysteretic devices forced with low-amplitude signals and gives suitable outlines for the design of several measuring devices.
