Abstract

We introduce a new approach to the characterization of femtosecond optical pulses based on a remarkably simple setup combining a two-photon detector and a pulse shaper consisting of a longitudinal acousto-optic programmable filter. The operation of this setup is demonstrated through the use of a new version of spectral phase interferometry for direct electric-field reconstruction based on time-domain instead of on frequency-domain interferometry.

  11. The spectral bandwidth of our pulse shaper is limited to 100 THz because of the electronics driving the acousto-optic transducer. This value is much greater than the 10-THz bandwidth of our laser pulses and is therefore not detrimental to the measurement because the bandwidth is exactly centered on the laser's center frequency.
