Paper Abstract

We used ultrafast Fourier-plane optical-parametric-amplification (OPA) imaging to simultaneously image, wavelength-shift, and amplify complex two-dimensional objects with spatial features from 1.1 to 11.3 line-pairs/millimeter, corresponding to a two-dimensional space-bandwidth product (SBP) of 13,790. This represents an increase in image complexity over previous analogous OPA imaging systems by almost three orders of magnitude. In wavelength-shifting the image from 930nm to an idler wavelength of 700nm, we observed image amplification by up to two orders of magnitude.
