Paper Abstract

The temporal high-contrast structure of intense, ultrashort optical pulses is important for many laser-matter interactions. I propose to distinguish four different temporal structures of the ultrashort pulses: wings, pedestal, (ASE) background, and replica. I further propose to include this description into specifications of commercial and state-of-the-art scientific high-peak power ultrashort pulse systems and use them homogeneously throughout the literature.
