  • An ultrafast all-optical shutter is presented, based on a simple two-color, two-photon absorption technique. For time-resolved luminescence measurements, this shutter is an interesting alternative to the optical Kerr gate. The rejection efficiency is 99%; the switching-off and switching-on speeds are limited by the pulse length only; the rejection time is determined by the crystal slab thickness; and the bandwidth spans the entire visible spectrum. We show that our shutter can also be used for… CONTINUE READING
