  journal={arXiv: Optics},
The discovery and understanding of many ultrafast dynamical processes are often invaluable. This paper is the first report to apply optical parametric amplification to implement single-shot ultrafast imaging with high space and time resolutions. Our setup breaks the constraints usually occurring among the time resolution, frame number, frame interval and spatial resolution in existing single-shot femtosecond imagers, so its performance can be greatly improved by using laser pulses with higher…

Ultrafast pump-probe microscopy with high temporal dynamic range.
This work combines both delay types for temporally high resolved observations of complete ablation processes ranging from femtoseconds to microseconds, while ablation is initiated by an ultrafast 660 fs laser pump pulse.
Single-photon sensitive light-in-fight imaging
A demonstration of the potential of single-photon detector arrays for visualization and rapid characterization of events evolving on picosecond time scales and the extreme sensitivity and short acquisition times pave the way for real-time imaging of ultrafast processes or visualization and tracking of objects hidden from view.
Ultrafast optical imaging technology: principles and applications of emerging methods
Abstract High-speed optical imaging is an indispensable technology for blur-free observation of fast transient dynamics in virtually all areas including science, industry, defense, energy, and
Single-shot ultrafast tomographic imaging by spectral multiplexing.
This work uses spectral multiplexing of a single laser beam to perform tomographic imaging over a continuous range of angles simultaneously to demonstrate the first single-shot ultrafast computed tomography reconstructions and obtain previously inaccessible structure and position information for laser-induced plasma filaments.
Serial time-encoded amplified imaging for real-time observation of fast dynamic phenomena
This work maps a two-dimensional (2D) image into a serial time-domain data stream and simultaneously amplifies the image in the optical domain and overcomes the compromise between sensitivity and frame rate without resorting to cooling and high-intensity illumination.
Single-shot tomographic movies of evolving light-velocity objects
Tomography—cross-sectional imaging based on measuring radiation transmitted through an object along different directions—enables non-invasive imaging of hidden stationary objects, such as internal
High Spatially Resolved Idler Image With a Compact Noncollinear Optical Parametric Amplifier Using a CW Laser as Signal
We realize a high spatially resolved idler imaging with a compact noncollinear optical parametric amplifier, which is based on type-II phase matching (PM). Using an intense femtosecond laser pulse
Sequentially timed all-optical mapping photography (STAMP) utilizing spectral filtering.
A new method called SF-STAMP for sequentially timed all-optical mapping photography (STAMP) that utilizes spectral filtering that is composed of a diffractive optical element, a band-pass filter, and two Fourier transform lenses is proposed.
Ghost imaging in the time domain
Scientists demonstrate the temporal analogue of ghost imaging with temporal resolution at the picosecond level. The approach is insensitive to temporal distortion that may occur after the object, and
Four-Dimensional Electron Microscopy
This Review highlights recent developments and inventions made by introducing the fourth dimension of time in electron microscopy, and presents the central concept involved, that of single-electron stroboscopic imaging, which discusses prototypical applications, which include the visualization of complex structures when unfolding on different length and time scales.
