Abstract

Two-photon photoconductivity in ZnSe is used to record femtosecond autocorrelation functions. This technique requires <100 µW of average power of a typical mode-locked femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser and distinguishes itself by a dynamic range over several decades and great conversion bandwidth, permitting the sensitive correlation of pulses of a few femtoseconds.
