Paper Abstract

The measurement of electrical waveforms from high-speed electronic and optoelectronic devices using electro-optic sampling in GaAs is described. In addition, a discussion of non-invasive sampling of waveforms internal to integrated circuits fabricated on III-V materials is presented. The sources of ultrashort optical pulses for these measurements are InGaAsP injection lasers which are either modelocked or gain-switched. Temporal resolution as low as 12 ps and sensitivity of 1.5 mV/ Hz have been obtained. The system is simple and compact.
