The paper deals with the optical fibre current sensor based on new optical fibre made of glass with a high value of refractive index. This kind of glass was developed to meet the requirements of these optical fibres. The aim of investigations was to develop a new optical fibre with adequate magneto-optical properties and a relatively weak linear birefringence resulting from the process of its production. These features are of essential importance for optical fibre current sensors. The results of investigations concerning such optical fibres have been presented, displaying satisfactory magneto-optical properties, as well as only low linear birefringence induced by stresses arising in the course of their manufacturing.
