Compensation for the temperature dependence of the faraday effect in diamagnetic materials: application to optical fibre sensors

Published

Author(s)

Abstract

The temperature dependence of the Faraday effect in a diamagnetic material can be compensated for by varying the polarization state of the light entering the material as a function of temperature. We demonstrate that this can be done automatically by exploiting the temperature dependence of a linear retarder (waveplate).
