Abstract

A novel optical fiber current sensor for low-current measurements is proposed and tested. By winding a commonly low-birefringence single-mode optical fiber in a special geometry, one can circumvent the bend-induced birefringence problem. Smaller sensors can now be built with a sensitivity that linearly increases with the number of fiber windings.
