Paper Abstract

Non-destructive tomographic images for a semi-transparent bottle and fingers of man have been obtained in real time by using HAMAMATSU C1587 synchroscan streak camera and a colliding pulse mode locked ring dye laser which emits 615nm laser pulses with 100 femtosecond duration, as a probe. This new technique, Laser pulse tomography, has been invented by adopting the streak camera to analyze time delays of reflected and transmitted light from/through the object. Experimentally, spatial resolutions of approx. 1 mm for the tomographic direction and approx. 0.4 mm for the spatial direction on the objects have been achieved for the first time.
