Abstract

Ultrabroadband mid-IR continuum pulses can be detected on a single-shot basis using chirped-pulse upconversion. Converting the mid-IR pulse to the visible reduces the fractional bandwidth and enables use of a silicon CCD camera. Removing the cross-phase modulation of the chirped pulse results in 1cm1 resolution over a 600cm1 detected bandwidth.

IR continuum generation and upconversion setup. Spectra corresponding to the 800 nm pulses before and after the hollow fiber are shown for comparison. A spectrogram of the upconverted IR as a function of the IR-800 delay shows the second-order spectral phase of the 800 nm chirped pulse.

Fig. 2

Upconverted IR continuum. The absorption lines at 1983, 2013, and 2045 cm 1 correspond to carbonyl stretches in Mn 2 ( CO ) 10 ; the remaining absorption lines are from atmospheric water and carbon dioxide. The inset shows the large number of points measured by upconversion. The spectra are collected with an integration time of 100 ms .

Single-shot upconverted IR spectrum (not phase corrected). The peaks near 2350 cm 1 correspond to absorption by atmospheric carbon dioxide.
