Abstract

We present the measurements of the spatiotemporal impulse response of a system creating nondispersing Airy pulses, i.e., ultrabroadband Airy beams whose main lobe size remains constant over propagation. A custom refractive element with a continuous surface profile was used to impose the cubic phase on the input beam. The impulse response of the Airy pulse generator was spatiotemporally characterized by applying a white-light spatial-spectral interferometry setup based on the SEA TADPOLE technique. The results were compared with the theoretical model and previously spatiotemporally characterized Airy pulses generated by a spatial light modulator.
