Abstract

We demonstrate for the first time (to our knowledge) characterization of ultrashort IR pulses by self-referenced spectral interferometry. Both sub-55-fs pulses from 1.4 μm to 2 μm and broadband 2.5-cycle pulses at 1.65 μm (13 fs FWHM) are characterized.

The retrieved XPW FL pulse is shown in green. (c) Measured (red squares) and reconstructed (black solid curve) normalized spectra and spectral phase (blue squared curve) of the compressed pulse. The normalized XPW spectrum is displayed as a green dashed curve.
