The method of polarization-rotated reflection is applied to sensors with polarization-maintaining optical fibers. By the use of this scheme, stable measurement can be realized because the fluctuation of the light propagation characteristics in the fiber is canceled automatically without any additional active phase compensation techniques. Several kinds of sensors were designed for the measurement of different physical values. A magnetic field sensor and a temperature sensor were built and the performances were tested to confirm their basic features experimentally.
