While current sensors based on the Faraday effect in bulk materials have shown good success in field tests, the use of single mode fiber as the sensing element has both technical and economic advantages. In this paper we describe some of the practical problems that have inhibited the development of fiber current sensors. Recent research suggests that most of these problems, including especially the problem of linear birefringence in the sensing coils, can be solved. Instruments providing a measurement quality approaching that set by fundamental material parameters can now be achieved.
