Paper Abstract

The effect of linear birefringence modulation on the magnetoptic Faraday rotation ((Omega) ) is demonstrated to be separable by illuminating the sensor with linearly and circularly polarized light. For levels of (Omega) typically obtained in power distribution and transmission industries crosstalk levels between the two signals have been experimentally observed that enable +/- 0.1 - 1% accuracy to be obtained in (Omega) .
