A fiberoptic AC/DC magnetic gradiometer utilizing magnetic translational force is proposed, and its working principle is verified. The minimum gradient of an AC magnetic field of 4×10-2 is detected with 100 mm of Sm-Co-coated sensor fiber built into an interferometer. This gradiometer is intrinsically insensitive to spatially uniform magnetic fields but is sensitive to their gradients. Therefore, the dynamic range and S/N ratio of measurements with the proposed sensor are not restricted by the magnitude of background magnetic field, including the geologic magnetic field. Spatial resolution is <1 mm
