A novel fiber-optic sensor based on the alternating electric field force actions on polyimide tubing with space charge for power-frequency electric field sensing is presented. In structure, the sensor consists of a lightweight fiber cantilever beam covered with a length of electrically charged polyimide tubing as the field sensing element. A twin-FBG based Fabry–Perot interferometer is embedded in this fiber beam to detect the beam vibrations excited by the force of power-frequency electric field to be sensed. Space charge in polyimide tubing is formed through a dielectric charging process. The basic concept, structure, fabrication and operation principle of the sensor are introduced with detailed theoretical analyses. The comprehensive experiments with two sensor prototypes are carried out, in which a sensor exhibits a high sensitivity of 173.65 μV/(V/m) with a minimal detectable field strength of 0.162 V/m, and another has a durability of continuous operation for over a year.
