Nonlinear optical processing techniques that produce space-time information processing are introduced and experimentally demonstrated. The basic concept of such space-time processors closely resembles conventional Fourier optical processors of the space domain. By using ultrafast short pulses and nonlinear optics, we can perform not only real-time optical information conversion between the space and time domains, but also the processing and imaging of temporal information.
