Abstract:

A fiber-optic guided light wave voltage monitor consisting of a diode laser light source which is located remotely from a mega-volt power supply to be measured by an optical fiber light guide. A polarizer, a polarization rotation is proportional to the voltage which is to be monitored, a polarization analyzer located close to the voltage to be measured. An optical power meter, and a voltage display unit connected by a light guide to remotely read out the value of the voltage. Author
