Abstract

A single-shot autocorrelation of an ultrashort UV pulse is measured by detecting a two-photon-induced photoacoustic signal in water. A supersonic wave representing the autocorrelation function is detected by a polyvinylidene fluoride piezoelectric film with a spatial resolution of less than 60 μm. The detection sensitivity is higher than that of a multiphoton-induced fluorescence method by approximately 2 orders of magnitude.
