Paper Abstract

In this tutorial, we will show several novel optical instruments using optical phase modulation, which is a common technique used in fiber optic communications for phase shift keying and chirped RZ transmission. We will cover the concept of space-time duality, time-lens for jitter compensation and pulse compression, time-prism for ultrafast tunable optical delay, and generation of effective negative nonlinear refractive index using electro-optic phase modulation for compensation of self-phase modulation. These device concepts are inspired by the rapid technological development in telecom, and demonstrate the great potential of applying telecom technologies to optical instrumentation.
