Abstract

We demonstrate that, using a hologram, we can convert a spatial xy image into an xt image, where one spatial dimension is now transformed into the time domain. In particular, we generate the temporal equivalent of our corporate logo, where every pixel of the image is now represented by a short optical pulse.

(a) Spatial and (b) temporal versions of a Fourier-transform holographic system for space-to-time conversions by recording a hologram in the spatial setup and reading it out in the corresponding temporal system. Beams labeled 1 are used for writing a hologram, and beams labeled 2 are used in the readout process.
