The effect of rapid phase change on chirped continuum pulses is studied with a frequency-domain interferometer. Because of the chirp, temporal evolution of the optical Kerr response in CS2 is projected into difference phase spectra. The chirped continuum shows spectral shifts that are due to induced phase modulation even when the continuum has a flat spectrum.
