The optical fiber magnetic sensing element (OFMSE) based on the optical fiber coated with composite coating polymermagnetic powder has been already introduced in magnetic field sensing. In this research, the rapid quenched Nd-Fe-B powder with Nd rich content was used as magneto-active component in composite coating. Magnetic powder was dispersed in poly-(ethylene-co-vinyl- acetate) - EVA solution in toluene. The influence of magnetic powder content (20, 30, 40 and 50 mass %) in composite coating of multimode optical fiber on the thickness, hardness and uniformity was observed and discussed. Sensitivity and reversibility of the constructed OFMSE in the external magnetic field are illustrated.
