The accurate and localized measurement of electric fields in MRI is very important to assess RF safety hazards. In this work we present a purely optical sensor which is substantially smaller than existing dipoles to measure E-fields with high spatial resolution in a clinical MR system. This sensor allows for MR-safety inspections of RF coils and even for E-field assessment of small metallic structures such as implants or catheters in the MRI environment.
