Abstract

A simple fiber sensor for magnetic field measurement based on nanoparticle Fe3O4 magnetic fluid and relative Fresnel reflection is presented. The sensor includes only a light source, three couplers, two photodetectors, and two fiber sensing ends. Magnetic fields at different concentrations of magnetic fluid are measured. Magnetic fluid with high concentration can be used for the measurement of weak magnetic fields, while low concentration fluid is used for the measurement of strong magnetic fields. The temperature dependence of the sensor is also addressed.
