We present a method for obtaining time-resolved measurements of the amplitude modulation and the phase shift of a chirped probe pulse interacting with a femtosecond-laser-produced plasma. Based on spectral interferometry, the technique allows for single-shot measurements and keeps the temporal resolution associated with the full bandwidth of the probe pulse. We demonstrate the efficiency of this technique by probing femtosecond-laser breakdown of plastic targets.
