Paper Abstract

We report dc to rf conversion, using picosecond optoelectronic switches for the first time. A rf pulse train of two and one half cycles has been obtained having a period of 4ns and a voltage switch-out efficiency better than 90%. This device exhibits future potential for high power pulse generation at high frequencies.
