We demonstrate the validity of the Shackled-frequency-resolved-optical-gating technique for the complete characterization, both in space and in time, of ultrashort optical pulses that present strong angular dispersion. Combining a simple imaging grating with a Hartmann–Shack sensor and standard frequency-resolved-optical-gating detection at a single spatial position, we are able to retrieve the full spatiotemporal structure of a tilted pulse.
