Paper Abstract

Extinction ratio is an important parameter of a polarizer, and the bias angle of the polarizer used in optical current sensing systems is also an important adjustable parameter. Both them can certainly affect the performance of the sensing systems. In this paper, the effects of the extinction ratio and bias angle error of polarizers upon the output characteristics of an optical current sensor are investigated theoretically and experimentally, some useful results are given for the optical current sensor designers.
