In this work an optical fiber laser with loop configuration was developed for magnetic field measurement. The transducer element is an FBG written in a HiBi fiber whose wavelength is modified using a magnetostrictive material that applies deformation in the presence of the magnetic field. The laser has a bandwidth of 450 MHz and operates in single polarization. A shift of 258.5 pm was observed in the laser operating wavelength for a magnetic field of 17.85 mT. Moreover, a maximum sensitivity of 14.72 pm/mT in the linear regime operation was achieved when increasing the magnetic field. The system provides a narrow emission line that is dependent on the magnetic field magnitude enabling high resolution interferometric measurement schemes. The laser response to AC magnetic fields was also characterized using a passive interferometer with higher sensitivity in the range of 8.32 to 17.93 mTRMS.
