An integrated optics version of the Pockels cell has been developed for the measurement of large electric-fields, Test results indicate that sensors of this type are capable of metering high-voltage AC signals with less than 0.3% error. They can also be used for monitoring lightning impulses with less than 6% error and, therefore, meet the standards suggested by Erickson (1992) for high-voltage sensors
