Paper Abstract

It is shown that although divergent upon exiting an optical solid, and typically color dispersive over short propagation distances, controllably generated ultra broadband continuums can be propagated as a pulsed white-light source with a near-ideal Gaussian intensity distribution. In contrast to active 3-D imagery with monochromatic illumination, pulsed ultra-broadband continuum illumination is shown to enable active 3-D multi/hyperspectral imaging and sensing for standoff characterization of materials and enhanced object identification.
