As part of a interdisciplinary team including staff from the Optoelectronics and the Radio Frequency Technology Divisions of EEEL, SED staff are developing statistical methods and associated software for calibration of high-speed digital sampling oscilloscopes and characterizing the impulse response of photodiodes. Statistical tasks include:
- development of estimation methods and algorithms for timebase distortion estimation and correction,
- drift estimation,
- signal alignment, and
- timing jitter estimation.
