Williamson Steven, Mourou Gerard: Electro-electron optical oscilloscope system for time-resolving picosecond electrical waveforms.. Univ Rochester, October 15, 1986: EP0197196-A1 (34 worldwide citation)

A system for time-resolving ultra-short electrical waveforms of up to a few hundred gigahertz bandwidth is presented. The system utilizes a fast electro-optic modulator capable of subpicosecond responsivity. A CW (continuous wave) laser is used to probe the change in birefringence resulting in the m ...
