Abstract

A very concise field-calibrated electro-optic probe using interference of modulated beams is presented. A model for interferometric electro-optic sensing with a sensor probe is proposed, utilizing the interference fringing slopes and field-induced electro-optic phase retardations. The sensing dynamic range is experimentally explored by investigating the modulation slopes and retardations with respect to the probe beam’s polarizations. The probe shows a dynamic range 45 dB over the microstrip lines. This sensitivity is acceptable for realizing electric field imaging of radiative electronic devices. The absolute sensitivity of the probe is also determined with a micro-TEM cell that generates accurate electric fields with calculable strength for probe calibrations.
