Abstract
We propose a scheme for the real-time optical sampling of a multicast signal based on the parametric process. The linearly chirped and time-broadened pulses are used instead of the traditional mode-locked sampling pulses. The amount of signal copies or the rate of sampling train can be efficiently reduced by the chirped pulses while keeping a high-equivalent sampling rate. Simulation results show that the equivalent sampling rate of 120  GSa/s can be obtained by using only a sampling source of 10 GHz together with three signal copies. This scheme can efficiently improve the sampling rate in the real-time optical sampling and reduce the requirement on electronic devices for signal processing.
