Paper Abstract

It is presented two detections schemes to be used in Faraday Effect current sensors. They enlarge the dynamic range of current measurement preserving a good accuracy with relatively simple optics. These technics overcome the ambiguity problems normally present in this class of sensors. One is able to measure the ampli.tude of AC currents while the other follows it, giving a real time digital output.
