Abstract We demonstrate an aberration-free, all-optical, ultra-fast oscilloscope based on the concept of Fourier-transformation with an optical time-lens. By combining the four-wave mixing time-lens with a Fourier-domain optical processor as the dispersive element we avoid aberrations associated with the traditional method of using lengths of fibre for the dispersive elements. We investigate the impact of aberrations due to third-order dispersion and inaccuracies in matching the Fourier-transform condition and demonstrate how these are overcome using the optical processor. The resolution of the oscilloscope is 750 fs.
