Abstract

We present a new method based on self-diffraction dispersion-scan (SD d-scan) that enables the simultaneous measurement of two distinct ultrashort laser pulses in a region where they spatially and temporally overlap. This situation can arise when sampling and focusing two different spatial portions of a single inhomogeneous beam onto a medium. We demonstrate this new dual SD d-scan method by simultaneously characterizing two intense broadband ultraviolet pulses at 400 nm, with durations in the 10 fs range, originating from two different spatial portions of a beam produced by a multiplate continuum (MPC).
