Paper Abstract

In the application of fiber optic polarimetric sensors two major problems occur: (1) the influence of the connecting fibers and (2) the influence of internal birefringence in the sensing area which has not to be constant over its whole length. In the following paper we describe a method which overcomes these problems by analyzing the polarization transfer matrix of the sensor element and we show the results for a fiber optic polarimetric current sensor.
