Paper Abstract

This paper discusses recent progress toward the development of an electronics measurement capability with picosecond time resolution using picosecond optical pulses. Devices utilizing the transient photoconductivity produced by the absorption of picosecond optical pulses in high speed semiconductor circuits have been demonstrated which are capable of performing elementary electronic operations such as switching, gating, sampling, pulse generation, etc. Applications to electro-optic gating, high speed electronic sampling, and measurement of semiconductor relaxation and transport phenomena will also be discussed.
