We provide the retrieved pulse for optimum wedge insertion (maximum compression) conditions and correct its time evolution due to the spectral phase having been wrongly assigned the opposite sign in our previous paper [Opt. Express 20, 17880 (2012)]. These changes do not affect the conclusions of the paper.
