Optimal design of optical fibres for electric current measurement

Edwards, Henry O., Jedrzejewski, Kazimierz P., Laming, Richard I. and Payne, David N. (1989) Optimal design of optical fibres for electric current measurement Applied Optics, 28, (11), pp. 1977-1979. (doi:10.1364/AO.28.001977).

Record type: Article


The current sensitivity and bandwidth of the optical fiber current monitor are analyzed. The optimal sensitivity is proportional to the ratio of fiber attenuation to the Verdet constant at a specific fiber length. A selection of compound glasses has been investigated with a view to improving bandwidth and sensitivity over standard silica-fiber systems. A trial fiber of the most promising glass (Schott F7) has been fabricated and characterized.
