Abstract

This paper extends the investigation of zone plates to the temporal case. By exploiting the space–time duality between the paraxial diffraction of beams in space and the linear dispersion of optical pulses, we present the time-domain analog of a multiple imaging system. The temporal system is created by using a digital chirp signal generator together with two dispersive delay lines. The key motivation is the potential application of the temporal zone plate to multiple compressions of pulses in dispersive lines.
