We demonstrate generation and measurement of intense deep-ultraviolet light pulses with a duration of 2.8 fs (FWHM of the intensity envelope) and a wavelength distribution between 230 and 290 nm . They emerge via direct frequency upconversion of sub- 4 fs laser pulses of a carrier wavelength of 750 nm focused into an Ne-filled, quasi-static gas cell. Dispersion-free, third-order autocorrelation measurements provide access to their temporal intensity profile.
