Pulse detection

We operated the Koheron LD100 laser in pulsed-mode (width of 10 ns, pulse period of 100 ns, 10 Vpp modulation). The laser average output power was 850 µW. Half of this power was used to feed the PD200T. Trigger threshold was adjusted to 1.0 V. The figure below shows the analog output (in blue) and the TTL output (in purple) observed on an oscilloscope:

Pulse detection

Propagation delay between the analog and the TTL output is about 2.5 ns. TTL rise and fall times (10 to 90 %) are 1.3 ns and 0.7 ns, respectively.

PRBS modulation

We modulated the Koheron LD100 laser with a 100 Mbps pseudo random binary sequence (PRBS) shown in yellow in the figure below. The green curve represents the modulation detected by the 100 MHz photodetection of the LD100. The analog and TTL output of the PD200T are shown in blue and red, respectively.

100 Mbps PRBS

The 25 ns delay between the laser modulation (in orange) and the PD200T analog output (in blue) corresponds to the 5 m fiber between the laser and the PD200T.
