Paper Abstract

We present preliminary data demonstrating the feasibility of coupling an optical parametric frequency upconverter to a streak camera, thereby realizing a hybrid recording system that can sensitively record very fast (≈10 ps) single-shot infrared events. The data presented in this paper represent experimental work in the upconversion of 845-nm light. This wavelength was chosen for experimental convenience to expedite our "proof of principle" demonstration. Our results give an estimated upconversion quantum efficiency of about 25(7. We also discuss details of our future experiments in upconversion/streak camera recording at 1300 nm.
