Fiber optic electric field sensing

Abstract: Electric field sensing is crucial in many applications including high power microwave systems, electromagnetic compatibility, electrical power systems, electronic circuits, and space exploration. Conventional sensing methods employ metallic probes which perturb the field under test and they are difficult to embed in the system under measurement due to their large size.
Fiber-optic sensors for electric field measurement are envisioned to address these issues owing to their all-dielectric structure and small size. Moreover, these sensors also exploit other advantages of fiber-optic sensors like light-weight, remote operation, distributed sensing, and multiplexing capabilities while ensuring minimal field perturbation and invasiveness. Currently, we are working to develop some fiber optic electric sensors based on fiber optic interferometry.
