Paper Abstract

A compact design of a single-shot autocorrelator, including time-calibration, for the detection of low-repetition femtosecond laserpulses is presented. The conversion of the temporal duration of the laser pulse into a spatial distribution is obtained by noncollinear frequency doubling in a lithium-iodate crystal. The intensity distribution of the second harmonic signal is detected by a CCD-line-image sensor. The present crystal limits the resolution from 100 fs to 20 ps.
