Optical sampling using wideband electro-optic modulators

A simple system for optical and microwave signals analysis based on the optical sampling technique is presented. It is novel in requiring only low-frequency detection and electronic components. This is made possible by the use of a commercially available LiNbO3 intensity modulator for processing the light wave. The ultimate performance of the system is discussed, and comparisons with standard detection systems are also made
