Paper Abstract

Modem optoelectrionics has made it possible to obtain electrical pulse of picoseconds or even subpicoseconds which is beyond the available dynamic range of any normal electronic detection method. One of the solution is electro-optic sampling which uses a microstrip Pockels cell to determine the electrical pulse waveform1,2. When the ultrashort electrical pulse propagates along the stripline of the Pockels cell, the electrical field inside the electro-optic crystal modulates the sampling light beam which enables us to obtain the time variance of the electrical field. Generally, the electrical field in the Pockels cell is assumed to be homogeneous. This approximation is reasonable for a macro Pockels cell, but cannot be applied to a microstrip Pockels cell. In this paper, we studied the electrical field distribution in a microstrip traveling wave Pockels cell.
