Intense single-cycle light pulses are very important tools for attosecond science and high-field physics, and are now enabling a new generation of compact kHz laser-plasma accelerators [1]. These pulses can be generated using several post-compression techniques [2-4] and their precise temporal characterization is crucial for optimizing the compression and for establishing the pulse profile and duration in an experiment. However, the over octave-spanning spectra and extremely short duration of the pulses pose a significant challenge for their characterization.
