Simultaneous compression and characterization of ultrashort laser pulses using chirped mirrors and glass wedges

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We present a simple and robust technique to retrieve the phase of ultrashort laser pulses, based on a chirped mirror and glass wedges compressor. It uses the compression system itself as a diagnostic tool, thereby making unnecessary the use of complementary diagnostic tools. We used this technique to compress and characterize 7.1 fs laser pulses from an ultrafast laser oscillator. (C)2011 Optical Society of America
