Photonic-assisted DAC & ADC
Signals arise across nearly every discipline and analysing both the time and spectral behaviour of these signals is key to driving a vast variety of scientific progress: from fundamental biology and physics, to engineering and the development of new technologies. The real time oscilloscope detects these behaviours and is one of the most important scientific tool used in signal analysis. Current state of the art real time oscilloscopes digitise the received signal using high speed analogue to digital converters (ADCs) before performing digital signal processing to capture the signal characteristics. Our research seeks to overcome the fundamental resolution limit in convectional real-time oscilloscope by utilising optics methods, aiming at developing an new instrument that would be highly valuable across a wide range of fields in which short, non-repetitive events occur. This ranges from the fast decay of molecules in biology and chemistry, to detection of astronomical events in physics, to the reception of communication packets in telecommunications engineering.
