Abstract
The theoretical model of the Faraday rotation in the low birefringence optical fiber is proposed to serve as a convenient tool for the determination of the birefringence upper limit allowed to retain current sensor sensitivity. The measurement technique offers a fast and efficient determination of the ultra-low linear birefringence when other techniques are not sensitive enough or they are difficult to implement. A temperature dependence of the Faraday rotation and its causes are investigated.
