Abstract
An optical voltage sensor is proposed that exploits the electric field dependence of transmission of a Mach-Zehnder interferometer fabricated on basis of the channel waveguides in electro-optic LiNbO3. The device works in a transmission scheme, utilizing the long fibre transmission lines for input and output optical signals. The sensor has been used to measure AC electric fields in a range from 0.005 to 56 kV/cm, resulting in a linear sensitivity that may be further improved by tailoring of the optical and geometrical parameters of the fibre-pigtailed Mach-Zehnder interferometer.
