We combine two nominal 100 fs pulses into a pulse train using an adaptive holographic quantum-well film as an adaptive pulse combiner in a two-wave mixing geometry. The two pulses in the combined pulse train are phase-locked and are immune to drifting optical path differences or delay times between the two input pulses. The phase is controlled by the choice of center wavelength. The spectrum of the pulse train is equivalent to the spectral interferogram between two ultrafast pulses. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We propose the use of an InGaAs/GaAs photorefractive quantum well (PRQW) as an adaptive beam combiner for holographic optical coherence imaging applications. Holograms have been observed by using a diode laser and an interferometer. A weaker quantum confined exciton leads to the saturation of...

    We demonstrate time- and depth-resolved holographic imaging of reflecting objects using the all-optical phase coherent photorefractive effect in ZnSe quantum wells. Since these quantum well structures use the coherence of excitons as a basis for holography the depth information of an object can...

    We demonstrate wide-field real-time, and depth-resolved holographic imaging of various reflecting objects using the all-optical phase coherent photorefractive effect in ZnSe quantum wells. In contrast to current photorefractive quantum well devices, these devices use the coherence of excitons as...

    Electron holography was used to determine the piezoelectric fields across an InGaN/GaN quantum-well structure. Holograms were taken with the sample intentionally tilted such that adjacent layers overlapped. The phase changes in the overlapping regions were analyzed to determine the piezoelectric...

    We present coherence-gated holographic imaging using a highly sensitive photorefractive (PR) polymer composite as the recording medium.

    InGaN quantum wells grown in the conventional [0001] direction are known to exhibit long carrier lifetimes that are attributed to strong internal electric fields due to spontaneous and piezoelectric polarization. These fields are expected to be considerably reduced in other crystal geometries....
