This paper is devoted to a detailed presentation of all aspects involved in a demonstration of a novel pulsed electric field (PEF) technique that does not generate neither conduction currents nor Joule effects. Details are given of both the experimental arrangement and the electro-optic Kerr-effect-based diagnostic used in the measurement of the intense PEFs in water. The results show unequivocally that the novel technique is effective in significantly reducing the initial concentration of Escherichia coli bacteria. Finally, a brief comment on the way ahead is provided. © 2013 IEEE.
