Abstract:

The direction of technological advance which will lead to the development of a deployable fiber-optic magnetic sensor has been brought into closer focus as a result of studies conducted under this contract. It is useful to categorize our work as comprised of the following constituent efforts a Componentry and configuration of optical sensors in general b Transductive componentry whereby a magnetic field effects a measurable change in a sensor system. This includes characterization and optimization of magnetostrictive materials c Configuration of a magneto-sensitive material for specialized applications tailoring of orientational characteristics, for example for measurement of total field, vector field, field gradient, etc. d Data acquisition techniques suited to the chosen transduction mechanism and the optical configuration and sensitivityspectral-response requirements of the application.
