Abstract

We demonstrate the temporal compression of photon echoes in frequency-selective materials by application of frequency-swept excitation pulses. Experimental results in Pr3+:Y2SiO5 for two- and three-pulse photon echoes are presented and compared with theory. A possible application to temporal reduction of optical data streams is shown.

(a), (b) Two- and three-pulse photon echoes using identical second and third pulses. (c) As expected, the two- and three-pulse (zoomed) photon echoes have the same shape and width. (d) Simulation confirming the results.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

(a) Pulse sequence and (b) experimental three-pulse echo using excitation pulses of 3 to 6 to 3 μs length (echo zoomed). The sweep direction is inverted for the last pulse, resulting in a short echo.
