Abstract

A novel cross-correlator that can be used for temporal characterization of femtosecond laser pulses has been developed. The correlation trace is obtained by “sampling” the structure of the laser pulse with a single, high-contrast pulse produced through femtosecond white-light generation in a line focus. This correlator has, therefore, fewer “ghosts” than a conventional third-order cross-correlator and it can be used with laser pulses that span across a wide wavelength range. Both scanning and single-shot experimental arrangements are described.

Experimental setup. Cylindrical lenses are L1 and L2, M are high-reflectors (mirrors), BS beam splitter, SCG supercontinuum generator, SFG sum-frequency generation crystal, and F1 and F2 are 900-nm and 425-nm bandpass filters, respectively.

Photomultiplier signal of the cross-correlator operating in scanning mode with no post-pulse, top (blue) trace; auto-correlator with post-pulse, middle (red) trace; cross-correlator with post-pulse, bottom (black) trace. To better distinguish the curves, top and middle traces have been displaced by 4 V and 2 V, respectively.
