Title: Long-pulse-width variable-wavelength chirped pulse generator and method

Abstract

A device for creating an optic pulse with different wavelengths separated by time. A pump laser is configured to output energy to a dye cell which, responsive to the energy, outputs an optic pulse. Mirrors direct the optic pulse away from the dye cell towards a spectrograph. The spectrograph has an input and two or more outputs. The spectrograph receives and converts the optic pulse to a wavelength separated optic signal presented on the two or more outputs. A first optic cable has an input end and an output end. The input end receives a first output from the spectrograph. A second optic cable has an input end and an output end. The input end receives a second output from the spectrograph. The second optic cable is a different length than the first optic cable to establish a time shift between the signals exiting the first and second cable.
