With the advent of picosecond photodetectors, photoconductive switches, and other ultrafast devices, the need has arisen for a measurement system capable of characterizing small electrical signals with picosecond accuracy. Techniques for measuring ultrafast electrical signals to date have limitations to their use. Sampling oscilloscopes have temporal resolutions limited by their electronic sampling window.
