Paper Abstract

We describe a class of nonlinear optical field cross-correlation processes capable of producing a high contrast subpicosecond optical gate with long broadband laser pulses. Two of the techniques, coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering and coherently amplified Raman polarization gating, were used to produce an image of an object hidden behind a strong scattering media. We also demonstrate the capability of three-dimensional imaging using optical gating with the reflected light. The temporal resolution of these techniques is on the order of the inverse bandwidth of the laser.
