Abstract

A type of spectrally selective imaging optical detector that is based on resonance ionization in an atomic vapor is proposed. It has the potential for improved spatial, spectral, and temporal resolutions compared with those of available techniques. Figures of merit are calculated and compared with those of existing techniques. Several potential applications such as the imaging of moving objects, ultrasonic fields, high-energy particle detection, and optical communications are discussed.
