Paper Abstract

We propose a photonic high speed analog data recording system that, when compared with conventional oscilloscope-based systems, offers economy, higher bandwidth, electrical isolation, and compactness. The basis of this approach is to record photon analog signals rather than analog electrical signals. A prototype High Speed Multi-Channel Data Recorder has been developed as a key component. Initial applications of this photonic system in pulsed power experiments have already shown its versatility and usefulness. The system, including photonic sensors, is described and its overall impact in diagnostic technology is discussed.
