Abstract

A pinhole time camera is proposed and analyzed. This instrument is the temporal analog of a conventional pinhole camera and is formed by a succession of dispersion, a time gate, and more dispersion. It is capable of magnifying or demagnifying time waveforms while preserving their envelope profile. The system requirements and the performance of the pinhole time camera in terms of magnification, dispersion, aperture size, and impulse response are examined.
