In many ultrafast contexts, a collinear pulse-shaping frequency-resolved optical gating (FROG) technique is desired. Some applicable techniques already exist, but they suffer from one of two issues: either they require many time points to allow for Fourier filtering, or they do not yield a traditional FROG trace. To overcome these issues, we propose and demonstrate a fast new phase-cycled FROG technique using a pulse shaper.
