Paper Abstract

A novel magnetic field sensor consisting of magnetic fluid (MF) and etched highly birefringent fiber loop mirror (Hi-Bi FLM) is proposed in the paper. The sensor is based on the etched FLM interferometer by using the property of the controllable refractive index of MF under external magnetic field. The refractive index of MF is changed by a tunable magnetic field and the resonant dip wavelength produced by the FLM shifts correspondingly. The magnetic field intensity can be measured by detecting wavelength shift. High sensitivity of 11.31pm/Oe and a resolution of 0.1Oe are obtained for the proposed magnetic field sensor.
