Paper Abstract

We present a discussion of several different types of joint time-frequency distributions of optical pulses. Particular attention is paid to the Wigner distribution W(t,(omega) ), as it is the fundamental distribution from which all others can be derived. We elucidate the relationship between the Wigner distribution and other spectrograms of current interest, such as that obtained from frequency-resolved optical gating (FROG).
