Abstract
We present a rigorous, but mathematically relatively simple and elegant, theory of first-order spatio-temporal distortions, that is, couplings between spatial (or spatial-frequency) and temporal (or frequency) coordinates, of Gaussian pulses and beams. These distortions include pulse-front tilt, spatial dispersion, angular dispersion, and a less well-known distortion that has been called “time vs. angle.” We write pulses in four possible domains, xt, xω, kω, and kt; and we identify the first-order couplings (distortions) in each domain. In addition to the above four “amplitude” couplings, we identify four new spatio-temporal “phase” couplings: “wave-front rotati...
