Paper Abstract

We have developed a new system for measuring picosecond electrical waveforms, where the advantages of electro-optic sampling are maintained, but the need for a complex short-pulse-laser is eliminated. The system utilizes two advanced technologies; an optical oscilloscope which is a conceptually new optical waveform analyzer with picosecond time resolution, and an electro-optic modulator for electric to optical signal convertor. Using this system, the waveform of the driving current and optical pulses from a laser diode have been simultaneously measured with the temporal resolution of < 25 ps.
