Compressed Ultrafast Spectral-Temporal Photography
Acquiring ultrafast and high spectral resolution optical images is key to measure transient physical or chemical processes, such as photon propagation, plasma dynamics, and femtosecond chemical reactions. In this talk, we will introduce a compressed ultrafast spectral-temporal (CUST) photographic technique, enabling both an ultrahigh frame rate of trillion Hz and a large frame number. Using spectral-temporal coupling, CUST photography can record multiple frames with a subnanometer spectral resolution with a single laser exposure, enabling ultrafast spectral imaging. CUST photography with high frame rate, high spectral resolution, and high frame number in a single modality offer a new tool for observing many transient phenomena with high temporal complexity and high spectral precision.
