Abstract

By varying the cross polarization angle between the input and output polarizer of a bulk glass rod sensor that utilizes the Faraday effect to measure currents, we show both experimentally and theoretically that the signal-to-optical-noise ratio can potentially be considerably improved. The advantages and limitations are described and possible applications discussed.
