Abstract

The Bragg selectivity of volume holograms makes them not well suited for many Fourier imaging processing applications in the space domain because they perform the function of a spatial filter and limit the field of view. Similarly, for femtosecond pulse holography they reduce the spectral bandwidth of the diffracted signal. However, we show both theoretically and experimentally that it is much easier in the frequency domain than in the space domain to achieve a large enough diffraction bandwidth of volume holograms for the bandwidth of 100-fs pulses to be used for frequency-domain femtosecond pulse shaping. The experiments were performed by nondegenerate four-wave mixing in photorefractive InP:Fe with femtosecond readout at 1.5 μm.
