Abstract:

Improvements made to the electro-optic sampling system have been instrumental to the demonstration of world record performance of an integrated photodiodeelectrical sampler. Measured, under-convolved time response of the circuit was 1.8ps, corresponding to an electrical 3dB bandwidth of 200GHz. To measure such a short time response, the pulse width of the electro-optic sampling system was also used to make the first measurements of broadband electro-optic response of organic polymers. The use of these polymers, as well as erbium doped fiber optical amplifiers, to increase the utility of electro- optic sampling techniques has been investigated. Author
