Abstract

124-nm radiation by surface second-harmonic generation was used to measure the pulse-width autocorrelation of femtosecond 248-nm pulses. Second-order autocorrelation was obtained for input fluences as high as 0.01 J/cm2. At higher input fluences, autocorrelation of higher order is observed.

Scheme for collinear autocorrelation measurements in the UV. The incident 248-nm fundamental energy was varied from 1 to 10 mJ. The fundamental was focused by a LiF lens, and the second harmonic was detected with a monochromator–photomultiplier (PMT) combination. A compensating plate was introduced in one of the arms to get an additional beam, which was used as a reference.
