1 January 1992 Femtosecond light-in-flight holography
Author Affiliations +
A holographic technique ('light-in-flight' (LIF) holography) is described, which combines classic off-axis holography with the latest ultrashort-pulse laser technology to produce three-dimensional images with femtosecond temporal resolution. The LIF holography can be used to study the distortions of pulses moving through optical fibers (Abramson, 1987), visualize relativistic effects (Abramson, 1985), measure the shape and deformation of fast moving objects, and make observations through nonrigid scattering media (Spears et al., 1989). The technique can also be applied in ultrafast optical science, metrology, and medical imaging.
