A new scheme for high-speed electro-optical conversions with potential application to data communication is investigated. As the core of investigation, a ring model utilizing relativistic electrons is introduced and the operating characteristics such as coupled wavelengths, gain and power are derived for a circular type of interaction. Advantages are addressed and practical challenges associated with the realization of this conceptual scheme are discussed in light of advances in fundamentally similar relativistic free electron lasing schemes.
