Abstract
A hybrid optical/electronic A/D conversion technique is described which uses electrooptic sampling and time-demultiplexing together with multiple electronic A/D converters. A system which uses 4 parallel electronic A/D converters and a pulsed diode laser is demonstrated with a sample rate of 2 GHz. For single tone test signals in the range of 10 to 11 GHz, the precision of this system is as high as 2.8 effective bits, limited principally by laser jitter.
