Abstract

An acousto-optic pulse shaper has been used to characterize few-cycle pulses generated in a hollow-core fiber. A grism pair precompensates for the dispersion of the acousto-optic crystal, allowing the full pulse-shaping window to be used for replica generation rather than self-compensation. A 9.4fs pulse was measured, the shortest ever measured with an acousto-optic pulse shaper, to our knowledge.
