Paper Abstract

Terbium-doped optical fiber has a high Verdet constant and is called a magnet-sensitive fiber. It is of importance for a variety of applications, including magnetic field sensors, current sensors, and fiber-type isolators. In this paper, the authors describe magnet-sensitive optical fiber fabrication, magneto-optic coefficient measurement, and its application in current sensor systems. Experimental results show that the Verdet constant of magnet-sensitive fiber containing high rare-earth content (approximately 4000 parts in 106) is 2.7 times as high as that of ordinary silica-based fiber. When tested in current sensor systems, it gives similar performance observed in ultralow birefringent fiber.
