Paper Abstract

The equations describing the diffraction of beams in space and the dispersion of pulses in dielectrics can be made to appear virtually identical. This suggests that a temporal equivalent to a space lens in combination with dispersion should yield a system for imaging waveforms in the time domain. This paper describes the principles of such an imaging system and suggests some applications for time scale transformation.
