Optical sampling1 is very attractive for ultrahigh-bit-rate optical transmission technology because of high temporal resolution, small distortion, and low noise. We propose a practical and compact optical sampling system using a mode-locked laser diode (LD) as a sampling source and a frequency offset technique to obtain an electrically swept cross-correlation.
