An isotropic electric-field probe, capable of characterizing and quantifying electromagnetic field, was fabricated. The probe consists of three short dipole antennas, a beam-lead Schottky diode and the high resistive transmission line. In order to get the isotropic response three mutually orthogonal dipoles are configured to form the probe. The probe's short dipole elements allow measurements of electric fields from 300MHz to 2GHz with a flatness of .+-. 2.9dB. The mutually orthogonal dipole configration shows a .+-. 1.2dB deviation in the isotropic response with respect to angle.
