14 May 2018 Detection of magnetic field with use of optical sensors
Author Affiliations +
Nowadays optical fibers are used in many industries. In addition to the data transmission, many sensor applications with using some special optical fibers are expanding. Faraday's phenomenon is often used for detection of the magnetic field. The size of the deviation of the polarization plane of optical radiation passing through the optical fiber is evaluated in Faraday's phenomenon that occurs due to the influence of the external magnetic field. This paper describes our new approach to addressing this issue using standard telecommunication fibers, PDMS-based optical connections, specialty products and some magnetic field sensitive materials. Our detector of the magnetic field can find a use for simplified measurement of weak magnetic fields up to 0.3 T.
