Description/Abstract

A proof-of-principle experimental demonstration with theoretical modeling is presented for resonantly enhanced Faraday rotation in a microcoil current sensor. The recirculation of resonant light within the coil gives rise to an accumulated polarization rotation and thus improved responsivity. According to simulations, microcoil resonators with sharper resonances could offer significantly larger enhancements. This new type of current sensor has the potential to be ultrafast, compact, and low-cost.
