Paper Abstract

An optical deflection interferometric streak system has been studied for measuring picosecond optical pulses from mode-locked lasers. The interferometric streak unit consists of high speed electro-optic deflectors installed in the two-beam interferometer. Preliminary experiments on a prototype system indicates that the interferometric streak unit has the possibilities of improving time resolu-tion of conventional electronic streak cameras and developing a new picosecond time resolved interferometric streak camera. The time resolution of 100 ps can be obtained with an electronic streak camera of the spatial resolution of 2.5 line pair/mm, which is used for testing the system at a 1.064 µm wavelength.
