Paper Abstract

This paper is devoted to the description of a new type of fiber optic magnetic field sensor based on spectral modulation encoding techniques. This device uses a Faraday magneto-optic element as transducer and converts the rotation of the plane of polarization of the light induced by the magnetic field into a small change in the large optical path difference provided by a birefringent coding plate. The use of a broadband source and of an interferometric detector, with an optical path difference matched to the sensor one, allows to reach high resolution and perfect down-lead insensitivity. A dual-wavelength arrangement is proposed to determine the temperature and magnetic fied values with the same probe.
