A method has been developed to embed a variety of different types of nanoparticles into microstructured polymer optical fibers (mPOFs). This figure shows a mPOF with cobalt nanoparticles embedded within the core of the fiber to produce a magneto-optical effect. In this paper, rotation of the plane of polarization in relation to the dopant concentration and magnetic field strength is demonstrated. The magneto-optical effect coupled with careful tailoring of the microstucture allows for a number of potential applications, including magnetic field sensors, current sensors, and in-fiber optical isolators.
