Paper Abstract

We describe various optical techniques for processing and detection of femtosecond laser pulses. Photorefractive and cascaded second order nonlinear wave mixing are used for space-to-time conversion, transforming space domain information into ultrafast temporal waveforms. An inverse operation that transforms a femtosecond pulse sequence into a quasi-stationary spatial image is performed with spectral domain three wave-mixing. We also demonstrate single-shot phase sensitive femtosecond pulse detection with two-photon absorption in a conventional silicon detector array. This approach allows efficient detection of wide-bandwidth ultrafast signals in the wavelength range of 1-2 μm.
