Abstract

We demonstrate asynchronous, single-shot characterization of an ultrafast, high-repetition-rate pulse source using a time-lens-based temporal magnifier. We measure a 225 GHz repetition-rate pulse train from a microresonator-based frequency comb. In addition, we show that such a system can be used as a frequency compressor for real-time, high-speed RF spectral characterization.
