In the transmitter, pulses are initiated by a pulse generator that generates rectangular monocycle pulses with sub-nanosecond duration.
To measure how long light pulses loiter, the team split a 150-fs infrared laser pulse into two pulses and sent each along a different path to the same detector.
The form of the pressure pulse, or its shape and magnitude, determines the minimum aperture size, and the aperture size determines the capacity of the screen and the extent to which the screen can improve pulp quality.
