Abstract
We have proposed a novel magnetic field sensor based on orthogonally-polarized dual-frequency fiber laser and Faraday effect. In this paper, we propose a method to enhance the sensitivity of such Faraday effect based heterodyning fiber laser magnetic field sensor by tuning the intra-cavity intrinsic linear birefringence. We demonstrate that the sensitivity to magnetic field intensity is inversely proportional to the linear birefringence. A CO2-laser treatment is therefore proposed to tune the intra-cavity linear birefringence. With CO2-laser treatment to lower the intra-cavity linear birefringence, the sensitivities of heterodyning fiber laser sensors to magnetic field can be enhanced.
