Abstract

The carrier-envelope phase (CEP) shift of few-cycle pulses along a focal region is evaluated without neglecting the pulse reshaping inherent to any focusing process. The CEP shift is then found to strongly depend on the chirp of the focused pulse. Based on this effect, realistic optical systems for focusing few-cycle pulses are proposed to control their focal CEP shift for their phase-sensitive interactions with matter.
