Paper Abstract

Using an inverse propagation algorithm it is possible to determine the phase and the amplitude of ultrashort optical pulses in a single laser shot by analysis of the pulse spectrum after passage through a medium of known nonlinear response. Demonstration of the potential of the method is given for a Ti:Sapphire oscillator-amplifier chain.
