Pulse compression and traveling wave excitation scheme using a single dispersive element.


A single dispersive element is shown to be sufficient for simultaneous pulse compression and tilting of the pulse front, and therefore well-suited for traveling-wave excitation of targets. It is shown that in all the previous arrangements used for traveling wave excitation, spatially dependent group velocity dispersion occurs along the target. A compensated arrangement is proposed that provides pulse compression at the target-plane and exact synchronism between the pump and the generated pulses for various targets.
