Understanding Oscilloscope Frequency Response & Its Effect on Rise-Time Accuracy - Application Note
In this application note, we review the properties of both Gaussian and flat-response oscilloscopes, then discuss rise time accuracy for each response type. We show that flat-response oscilloscope, give more accurate rise-time measurement than a Gaussian-response oscilloscope of equal bandwidth, and we show you how to estimate the bandwidth you need. The application note will show you which type of frequency response offers the best measurement accuracy; there are two issues to consider, the maximum signal frequency, and the oscilloscope sampling alias errors. It will also determine how much bandwidth you need.

Optimizing Oscilloscope Measurement Accuracy on High-Performance Systems with Keysight Active Probes
This application note covers the following information that you should consider when selecting an oscilloscope probe to capture high-speed signals: Consider the effect that probe input impedance will have on your circuit. Capacitive loading becomes increasingly important at high frequencies and it is important to use the shortest possible ground lead to minimize inductance. The probe will introduce distortion into your measurements unless it has a flat transmitted response throughout the bandwidth of the probe. A flat transmitted response will closely track the signal at the probe tip and pass it to the oscilloscope with minimal degradation.
