Abstract

Light-in-flight (LIF) recording by holography is a powerful technique for observing ultrashort light pulse propagation. However, the recordable time of the technique has been limited by the lateral length of the holographic plate. Then, to extend the recordable time of LIF recording by holography, we proposed a space-division multiplexing technique of holograms, which divides the holographic plate longitudinally and uses double reference light pulses. We experimentally demonstrated that the recordable time becomes twice as long as before for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, using the proposed technique. Specifically, we recorded the motion picture of the ultrashort light pulse propagation for 236 ps.
