Abstract:

The report contains the results of a two year picosecond risetime instrumentation feasibility study. The problems involved in such instrumentation were carefully investigated. The system evolved from the preliminary efforts consisting of an electro-optic probe which modulates a laser beam a photocathode-electrostatic deflection CRT which produces a spiral trace on the CRT screen and a photographic-microdensitometer readout. Although many problems must be solved before a practical picosecond waveform instrument can be produced, the feasibility of such an instrument has been demonstrated. In addition to general engineering considerations, basic research in high frequency electro-optic materials, and studies of low transit time electrostatic deflection methods are included in this report.
