Abstract

An electro-optic sensor capable of detecting electric fields with a high degree of sensitivity and linearity is fabricated using optical D-fiber. The slab coupled optical sensor utilizes weak coupling and long evanescent interaction with a lithium niobate waveguide. Transmission dips from mode resonances have a linewidth of 0.12 nm and a Q factor of 13,000 . These sharp resonances improve device sensitivity and are achieved due to the unique fabrication process possible with D-shaped fibers. The sensor deviates < 0.1 % from linearity while monitoring fields between 200 V / m and 20 kV / m and promises high sensitivity to fields well beyond that range.
