Paper Abstract

An ultrafast optical deflector based on the induced nonlinear refractive index change of an area-modulation laser pulse for low-signal level optical A/D waveform converter has been designed. Using resonance enhanced Kerr nonlinear media, an optical deflector with the deflection time of approximately 1 ns to 100 ns with a 30-ps time resolution may be achieved for low- level input optical signals.
