Aberration-corrected time aperture of an electro-optic time lens

  title={Aberration-corrected time aperture of an electro-optic time lens},
  author={Sanjay Kapoor and Filip So'snicki and Michal Karpi'nski},
Recently, there has been renewed interest in electro-optic time lenses due to their favorable properties for quantum photonic applications. Here, we propose a new analytical approach to estimate the chirp rate of a time lens implemented using an electro-optic phase modulator driven with a single-tone radio frequency voltage. Our approach is based on a user-defined time aperture for the time lens. We observe that the temporal aberrations depend on the amplitude of the phase modulation and the e…

Electro-optic time lens with an extended time aperture

We propose what we believe to be a new approach to correct the residual aberrations of time lenses implemented through electro-optic sinusoidal phase modulation. The method is based on a single

Aberration-corrected quantum temporal imaging system

We describe the design of a temporal imaging system that simultaneously reshapes the temporal profile and converts the frequency of a photonic wave packet, while preserving its quantum state. A field

Temporal Imaging of Incoherent-Light Intensity Waveforms Based on a Gated Time-Lens System

We experimentally demonstrate temporal imaging of incoherent-light intensity waveforms using a combination of a temporal gating process and a time lens. This design allows one to set the system

Temporal imaging with a time lens.

It should become possible, with a temporal microscope, to expand ultrafast optical phenomena to a time scale that is accessible to conventional high-speed photodiodes.

Aperiodic electro-optic time lens for spectral manipulation of single-photon pulses

Electro-optic time lenses are promising experimental components for photonic spectral-temporal processing of quantum information. We report a stable method to realize an electro-optic time lens,

Quantum temporal imaging: application of a time lens to quantum optics

We consider application of a temporal imaging system, based on the sum-frequency generation (SFG), to a nonclassical, squeezed optical temporal waveform. We analyze restrictions on the pump and the

Multiwavelength pulse generator using time-lens compression.

A novel method of generating a multiwavelength pulse train by use of time-lens compression and a new aberration-correction technique based on the temporal analog of a spatial correction lens to improve the quality of the compressed pulses.

Aberrations in temporal imaging

Recent advances in temporal imaging allow construction of systems that can expand or compress arbitrary waveforms in time, while maintaining the shape of their envelope profile with subpicosecond
