Abstract

A new type of clamp-on magneto-optical current transducer based on the Faraday effect is presented. It is openable, hybrid, and square-shaped, and it has an internal mirror that allows the current sensitivity to improve and the effects of the optical activity and temperature-dependent linear birefringence to be rejected. The design and the simulated behavior of the proposed device are described and compared with the conventional (no mirror) transducer.
