The factor sa on the RHS of Eq. (17) was unfortunately lost during the proofs in Eq. (12) of Ref. [10].

These experiments were actually done in the nonstationary regime according to the nonlocal theory.

This is a typical experimental situation: the optimal compression point zopt scales with Neff [11], and since the nonlinear crystal length is a constant parameter one adjusts the intensity so zopt coincides with the crystal length.

On dimensional form R(t)=R(t/Tin)/Tin, which is independent on Tin since τa,b in Eqs. (10,12) must be replaced by the dimensional form ta,b=τa,bTin. In the frequency domain both R̃ and R̃ are dimensionless.
