Paper Abstract

We have designed and tested a guided wave optical modulator for applications as an integrated optical voltage probe. This voltage probe consists of an injection laser diode (ILD) connected to a stress-induced polarization preserving fiber, an electro-optic coupled-channel waveguide modulator, a graded-index multimode fiber for the return optical signal, and an electronics box containing the necessary electronics for the driving of the ILD source and the detection of the return signal. The electronics box can be physically separated from the ILD source and the fiber-modulator assemblies for ease of installation in the field. The ILD and modulator assemblies are ruggedized and the fibers are cabled. This probe has been tested in the frequency range 10 kHz-200 MHz and at a dynamic range of 40 dB at 200 MHz bandwidth.
