We demonstrate a powerful new tool for real-time single-shot imaging of ultrafast phase shifts based on multipulse interferometric frequency-resolved optical gating that can directly measure and display ultrafast-time-scale phase shifts without computation. In addition, this technique can, with the application of interferogram analysis and iterative phase-retrievial techniques, recover the intensity and phase of three pulses in a single shot and exhibits a linear sensitivity to the pulse field in the wings.
