Abstract

Few-cycle high-contrast vortex beams with pulse durations around 8 fs were generated from a Ti:sapphire laser oscillator with a single diffractive–refractive component. Angular and temporal pulse properties were characterized with an advanced time-wavefront sensor. The temporal transfer indicates a fairly complete self-compensation.
