Abstract

We demonstrated synthesis of picosecond pulse train from a continuous-wave laser source using low-driving-voltage Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) asymmetrically large-amplitude driven with step-recovery diodes, without using high-power driver amplifiers. 2-GHz, 5.2-ps pulse train was successfully generated.
