Abstract

Spatial distribution of hidden foreign objects in a semi-opaque environment has been investigated using ultrashort laser pulse time resolved techniques with spatial resolution down to less than 1 mm. Using femtosecond streak camera ranging, 1-dimensional distance has been measured. Time sequences of 2-dimensional images have been obtained using picosecond-Kerr gate.
