Abstract

Ultrashort pulses with durations in the range from 10 to 50 fs generated by Kerr-lens mode-locked mirror-dispersion-controlled Ti:sapphire lasers in ring and Fabry–Perot configurations are fully characterized by the high-dynamic-range autocorrelation and the frequency-resolved optical gating techniques. The pulse quality is investigated in terms of pulse duration–bandwidth product, contrast, temporal and spectral phase errors, and similarity of the pulse shape to the ideal sech shape.
