Abstract

Expressions are developed for the strains induced by a weak axial magnetic field in an optical fiber with a magnetostrictive jacket. The magnetic field sensitivity of the optical fiber is calculated as a function of jacket thickness for a variety of magnetostrictive jacket materials. The pressure response for various jacket thicknesses is also considered to minimize this effect as a noise source.
