Paper Abstract

The dispersion properties of the reflection-induced retardance of the polarization-preserving reflecting medium layer and its effect upon the sensitivity of an optical current sensor are theoretically analyzed taking the Jones' Matrix as a mathematical tool and simulated with a computer. The investigation results show that the dispersion will obviously affect the scale factor of the system. Therefore, it is necessary to stabilize the driving current and the ambient temperature of the optical source by some technical means. These results might be useful for the researchers and designers working in the optical current sensing techniques area.
