Paper Abstract

The MTASC (Microwave Transient Analyzer by Streak Camera) is designed for diagnosis of single-shot transient signals with a very wide bandwidth (> 10 GHz). The microwave electromagnetic signals are measured either in the form of voltage or current, or an electric or magnetic field. Since these signals possess both a broad bandwidth and expanded dynamic range, a multi-channel photonic analysis system is needed. Only photonic analysis covers such a broad bandwidth, which will be extended to more than 30 GHz in the future. Given that a dynamic range of around 60 dB cannot be measured directly, it is split by the sensing system which converts it into parallel channels applied simultaneously on the photonic analyzer. At first, passive sensors will be used in the system; later, in order to increase sensitivity, active sensors powered through optical fibers will be used.
