Abstract

Time lens and pinhole time camera imaging systems can effectively image both coherent and incoherent (large time-bandwidth product) waveforms. Broadband, coherent light pulses used to create quadratic phase modulation in the parametric time lens are but one class of several time lens mechanisms and are independent of the time-bandwidth nature of the input waveform unless derived from the same source in an experimental demonstration. Clarification of these points, made in an earlier paper [Opt. Lett. 39, 4243 (2014) [CrossRef]  ], is presented.
