Paper Abstract

The realization of a first-order interferometric autocorrelator in a nearly collinear geometry is reported as an alternative method to measure the minimum pulse duration of femtosecond deep-UV laser pulses. The Fourier limited duration of 257-nm femtosecond pulses is measured with high accuracy, and compared to what obtained by spectrally measuring the bandwidth of the pulses. The agreement between the two methods is excellent, thus indicating the interferometric autocorrelator as a useful tool to extract the chirp of femtosecond UV pulses when used together with a second-order autocorrelator to measure the actual pulse duration.
