Abstract

Spectral and temporal characterization is a fundamental task when a tunable Ti:sapphire ultrafast laser system is operated for multiphoton microscopy applications. In the present paper simple procedures are reported that perform laser-peak-emission wavelength and bandwidth measurements without the need of any further instrumentation but a simple and inexpensive diffraction grating, by taking advantage of the confocal microscope imaging capabilities.
