Title: Word-synchronous linear optical sampling of 40 Gb/s QPSK signals
Published: March 20, 2009
Abstract: We demonstrate word-synchronous measurements of QPSK format 40 Gb/s PRBS signals using linear optical sampling with a precision time-base, which allows us to average waveforms and distinguish between signal distortion and noise in eye diagrams.
