Abstract

We study the influence of third-order spherical aberration on the group velocity dispersion and on the propagation time delay of a plane pulse that is focused by a thin lens. Applications in refractive–diffractive propagation time delay compensation systems and in Gaussian temporal-shaped pulses are analyzed.
