In this work a novel approach in synchronization of electrooptic sampling systems for the ultra-broadband characterization of active mm-wave and THz devices is presented. The relative time jitter between sampled circuit and probing electrooptic head is eliminated by using a femtosecond laser system both as the generator of CW driving the device under test as well as the impulsively probing element. Previous ultra-broadband approaches were applicable to passive components driven by THz impulses… CONTINUE READING
