We propose and experimentally demonstrate an original method to analytically retrieve complete spectral phase of ultrashort pulses by measuring two modified interferometric field autocorrelation traces using thick nonlinear crystals with slightly different central phase-matching wavelengths. This new scheme requires no spectrometer, detector array, nor iterative data inversion, and is compatible with periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) waveguide technology offering potential for high measurement sensitivity.
