Polarimetric current sensor using an in-line Faraday rotator

A novel polarimetric fiber optics current sensor configuration using an in-line 22.5 degree Faraday rotator is proposed on this paper. The introduction of the 22.5 degree Faraday rotator allows to obtain a sensor configuration that does not require adjustment on most optical elements, resulting in an accuracy immune to manufacturing issues. Two prototypes are presented in this paper that are designed to measure AC current, yielding in an excellent accuracy over more than 3 decades.
