Paper Abstract

Self-imaging is demonstrated based on Montgomery’s theory for periodic wave fields and the use of diffractive optical elements. We review the theory of self-imaging, describe the grating design and present experimental results. The presented work aims at building an interferometer that may serve as a tapped-delay-line filter for the shaping of ultra-short light pulses.
