Abstract

The frequency-dependent group delay of dielectric mirrors was measured by spectrally resolved white-light interferometry. Chirped mirrors and thin-film Gires – Tournois interferometers designed for dispersion control in a femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser oscillator – amplifier system were tested with a group-delay resolution of ±0.2 fs and a spectral resolution of ∼1 nm over the spectral range of 670 – 870 nm.
