Abstract

Two approaches to the analysis of spectral–temporal phenomena in optics have appeared recently. One utilizes channeling of white-light spectra and the other uses temporally resolved phase-locked pulses. We show that the two approaches are very closely related and that devices utilizing them have the same ultimate limits but quite different immediately practical limits.
