We propose a time-domain interferometry method that circumvents the usual sampling rate condition. It was devised for the retrieval of fast optical response functions in low-repetition-rate experiments. Its potential temporal dynamic range matches the spectral resolution and bandwidth requirements of the arbitrarily shaped spectral filters that are engraved in amorphous spectral hole-burning materials.
