Abstract

A field trial of an electrically passive optical-fiber magnetometer incorporated into the transient electromagnetic method of geomagnetic surveying is described. The transducer of the magnetometer consisted of metallic glass wire cocoated with a length of optical fiber. The magnetometer was capable of measuring the decay rate of the surface magnetic field produced by the surveying technique. The sensor’s minimum detectable field was 2.5×10-8G/Hz at 2 kHz.
