Paper Abstract

We evaluate the possibility to use a low-birefringence fibre for current sensing application in harsh environmental conditions as expected in quasi steady plasma burning reactor. Experimental results show that the Faraday rotation of the low-birefringence fibre is not significantly degraded by a gamma irradiation upto 5.4 MGy and when the fibre is kept at ambient temperature.
