Monitoring of JUICE Optical Fibers During Thermal Cycles Keeping the Optical Connectors at Different Stable Cryogenic Temperatures in 3-Chambers Setup Two types of multimode fibers (50µm and 400µm) will be used for the scalar sensor of the JUICE (Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer program) magnetometer. This optical sensor will be placed at the end of a boom. These multimode fibers will transmit modulated laser light through the sensor, the light source, and the detector electronics being located within the spaceship.
