Abstract

We demonstrate a frequency-domain streak camera (FDSC) that captures the picosecond time evolution of luminal-velocity refractive index structures in a single shot. In our prototype FDSC, a probe-reference pulse pair propagates obliquely to a subpicosecond pump pulse that creates an evolving nonlinear index structure in glass, supplementing a conventional frequency-domain holographic probe-reference pair that copropagates with the pump. A single spectrometer acquires data from both pairs via spatial or temporal multiplexing, demonstrating the feasibility of a compact frequency-domain tomographic system in which a single spectrometer processes data from multiple probing angles.
