Abstract : Non-contact picosecond electro-optic sampling utilizing semiconductor laser pulses is discussed in regard to improvement of space dependent sensitivity and absolute voltage measurement. While the need for measurement systems capable of characterizing ultrafast electrical signals has grown according to the increasing speed of electrical devices, Valdmanis have, for the first time, achieved time-resolved ultrafast photodetection with accuracy of less than lps by electro-optic sampling using a CPM dye laser . Nowadays the electro-optic sampling method has opened a new area as a measurement method of ultrafast electrical signals.
