We develop a covariance matrix describing the uncertainty of mismatch-corrected measurements performed on the National Institute of Standards and Technology's electro-optic sampling system. This description offers a general way of describing the uncertainties of the measurement system in both the temporal and frequency-domains. We illustrate the utility of the approach with several examples, including determining the uncertainty in the temporal voltage generated by the photodiode.
