We describe a beam-deflection technique based on the ultrafast electronic Kerr effect for measuring the duration of ultrashort laser pulses in a wide spectral range. Using this method, which provides the third-order intensity correlation function, we have measured subpicosecond KrF laser pulses. The results are in good agreement with the Kerr-shutter autocorrelation measurement.
