Abstract

We demonstrate a simple, all-optical, fiber-based method for characterizing the spectral amplitude and phase of ultrafast pulses using a differential tomographic measurement realized via four-wave mixing. The technique is applied to subpicosecond pulses in the C-band of the telecommunication spectrum. Characterization of amplified pulses and propagation through dispersive media is demonstrated and compared with autocorrelation mea surements and calculated predictions. We show how our approach can be extended to larger bandwidths in similar systems, extending tomographic reconstruction of coherent fields to nearly an octave of bandwidth while maintaining a robust, waveguide-based geometry.
