Abstract

This Letter reports theoretical and experimental studies of spectrum reversal with tunable wavelength offset in the optical-frequency regime—two widely separated spectral sidebands can always behave as mirror images of one another with respect to the center frequency of the controlling pump pulse. We call this interesting physical phenomenon “spectral mirror imaging.”
