abstract
In this project active electro-optic probes for the measurement of electric and magnetic fields will be developed. The active probe consists of an antenna, an amplifier, a laser diode, a power supply circuit and an optic fibre.The different components will be studied in the project and optimised in order to maximise the sensitivity of the probe. A very innovative part is the integration of the amplifier and the laser diode in one opto-electronic IC. The probe will be further tested in a near-field measurement set up.
