Abstract

Observation of 0π-pulse formation with incoherent light through field cross-correlation is theoretically and experimentally demonstrated. The experiment illuminates some of the properties of this new incoherent light technique, which is used to analyze the fast temporal variations of the signal. In particular, the technique’s time resolution, signal-to-noise ratio, and sensivity to dispersion are investigated.
