Description

This briefly summarizes the work done under contract during FY88. The major technical development of the year has been substantial progress in reducing the size of fiber current sensors. The authors have continued the study of the ZnSe magnetic field sensor started last year. They have continued to investigate the possibility of obtaining fibers that would have better properties for magnetic field or current sensing. They investigated a high speed, polarization independent, switch that could be useful for LANL instrumentation applications. They have constructed the fixtures for an experiment to study the Kerr electro-optic effect in optical fiber. The have ... continued below

Description

This briefly summarizes the work done under contract during FY88. The major technical development of the year has been substantial progress in reducing the size of fiber current sensors. The authors have continued the study of the ZnSe magnetic field sensor started last year. They have continued to investigate the possibility of obtaining fibers that would have better properties for magnetic field or current sensing. They investigated a high speed, polarization independent, switch that could be useful for LANL instrumentation applications. They have constructed the fixtures for an experiment to study the Kerr electro-optic effect in optical fiber. The have done some exploratory work on electro-optic deflection, with a view to possible infrared streak camera applications. They have made significant progress, primarily on another contract, in construction techniques that will yield more rugged sensors. They have continued to study bismuth germanate as an electro-optic material. They have continued to provide general support on a wide range of fiber and sensor problems. This has been carried out through visits of NIST staff to LANL and NTS, visits of LANL staff to NIST, numerous phone consultations and participation in technical meetings of particular interest. This year, they participated in and made presentations based on NIST/LANL collaborations at the annual Photonics Workshop, the first DoD Fiber Optics Conference, and the annual SPIE fiber Sensor Symposium. In addition, they have visited companies and attended other conferences and exhibitions to obtain information on new products and techniques that could be of use to LANL staff.
