Paper Abstract

There are many features in addition to time resolution that are desirable for a picosecond optical power measurement system. An interdigitated contact, Schottky barrier silicon photodiode coupled to an electro-optic sampler exhibits a rise time better than 22 picoseconds, a quantum efficiency greater than 30%, a uniform responsivity over its receiving aperture, and a usable spectral response to beyond 2 micrometers.
