Calibrating Electro-Optic Sampling Systems



Dylan Williams, Paul D. Hale, Tracy S. Clement, Juanita M. Morgan


We apply frequency-domain impedance mismatch corrections to a temporal electro-optic sampling system. We identify and evaluate additional sources of measurement uncertainty. We use the system to characterize the magnitude and phase response of a photoreceiver that is physically far removed from the point where the voltage waveforms are measured.
