Abstract

We report time-to-space mapping of femtosecond light pulses in a temporal holography setup. By reading out a temporal hologram of a short optical pulse with a continuous-wave diode laser, we accurately convert temporal pulse-shape information into a spatial pattern that can be viewed with a camera. We demonstrate real-time acquisition of electric-field autocorrelation and cross correlation of femtosecond pulses with this technique.
