Abstract

We retrieve the spectral phase of 400 fs pulses at 1560 nm with 5.2 aJ coupled pulse energy (40 photons) by the modified interferometric field autocorrelation method, using a pulse shaper and a 5 cm long periodically poled lithium niobate waveguide. The carrier-envelope phase control of the shaper can reduce the fringe density of the interferometric trace and permits longer lock-in time constants, achieving a sensitivity of 2.7 × 10 9 mW 2 (40 times better than the previous record for self-referenced nonlinear pulse measurement). The high stability of the pulse shaper allows for accurate and reproducible measurements of complicated spectral phases.
