We demonstrate a simple, essentially alignment-free Transient-Grating Frequency-Resolved-Optical-Gating arrangement using a simple input mask that separates the input beam into three beams and a Fresnel biprism that crosses and delays them. It naturally operates single shot and has no moving parts. It is also extremely broadband and hence should be ideal for measuring pulses from optical parametric amplifiers.
