Paper Abstract

We have demonstrated phase modulation of rotating linearly polarized light by current-induced Faraday rotation in a single mode optical fiber and used the technique to measure the current in ZT-40M, a Reversed-Field Pinch. We have also demonstrated the practicality of using twisted sensing fiber to overcome the problems associated with linear birefringence.
