Paper Abstract

In the paper, authors present an example of a simple and cost effective system of electric power supply by means of optical fiber. In many cases of physical measurements, it is very important to avoid excessive distortion to measured quantity. One of this is measurement of electromagnetic field of radio frequency. This is of concern in both, far- and near field examination. RF field measurement can be performed by direct measurement of the field at a point of interest or by measurement of the field scattered by a dedicated probe. One of the most important properties of this method is its low influence to the field under test. The full advantage of the system can be taken when the probe can be powered and controlled be means of optical fiber.
