Abstract

Spectral interferometric measurements are presented that show how wave propagation affects the carrier-envelope phase (CEP) of an ultrashort pulse in the focal region and results in variations that are different from the Gouy phase shift. Wavelength-dependent properties of the input beam are investigated and are seen to influence how the CEP is altered. The measured CEP changes show characteristics similar to the variations predicted by theory.
