Abstract
We present the results of our investigation of the feasibility of using an optical multiplexer-demultiplexer with diffraction gratings for the photonic streak camera. We describe how gratings can be used in a demultiplexer for a crystal streak camera and evaluate the performance of two gratings in a streak camera. The linear dispersion equation, used to determine the number of channels that can be multiplexed and recovered, accounts for focusing and collimating optics but neglects grating anomalies. To study the performance of the grating in the demultiplexer design, we investigated the characteristics of the gratings. The model reveals that interference from individual, adjacent, diffracted orders is a major restriction when one is recovering a large number of individual wavelengths from a beam containing a large spectral range. We include in this paper the experimental results that verify the model used to describe the multiplexer-demultiplexer.
