Abstract

Talbot’s bands can be observed in one of the diffraction orders of a
grating spectrometer with a partially phase-shifted input beam. This
experiment has long been considered as a curiosity. Here, we look at it
from a new perspective: we discuss the Talbot band experiment as a
combination of two kinds of dispersion, refractive and diffractive. This
may be of interest for various tasks of temporal optical signal
processing such as dispersion management and the shaping of
ps/fs-pulses. For this purpose, we demonstrate the use of micromachined
optical elements to alter the performance of the classical Talbot band
setup. A theoretical description and experimental results are presented.
