Abstract
We demonstrate a single-lead fiber optic magnetic field sensor system based on ferrimagnetic iron garnet crystals. This system automatically compensates for magnetic domain fluctuations in the transducer. Noise floors of 1.1 nT/Hz1/2 at 1 kHz are demonstrated without ferrite flux concentrators. Use of a single distal ferrite flux concentrator improves the sensitivity and noise floor by 17 dB with a frequency response of ~180 MHz; this represents a 3x improvement in gain-bandwidth product over previous reports. Using a pair of flux concentrators yields a 29 dB improvement and a noise floor of 35 pT/Hz1/2 at 1 kHz.
