Abstract

We report on noniterative spectral phase retrieval of 1.1nJ, 8fs pulses at 600nm by using 300-μm-thick lithium triborate crystals in a standard collinear autocorrelator with 2min data acquisition time. This method is simple, sensitive, and immune to the spectral distortion and UV absorption of the linear and nonlinear optics.

Nonlinear polarization power spectrum (shaded curve) obtained by assuming the experimentally measured spectral intensity and constant spectral phase. Experimentally measured second-harmonic power spectra due to the two 300 - μm -thick LBO crystals (solid, dashed-dotted curves), respectively. Inset, measured (solid curve) and simulated (dashed curve) phase-matching power spectra of LBO1.
