Abstract

Three commercial optical design programs are used to model familiar geometries in ultrafast optics. A set of macros has been created to calculate the pulse delay, group velocity dispersion, and third-order dispersion caused by the components in an ultrafast optical system. The results correspond to published values. This opens the possibility of using the well-developed optimization routines to improve the performance of ultrafast systems.
