Paper Abstract

We analyze the Gaussian temporal envelope of pulses with an initial duration of 200fs and a carrier wavelength of 810nm at the paraxial focal plane of an achromatic doublet lens designed in the IR region. The Seidel aberrations for thin lenses are evaluated for a well-collimated beam. We analyze the effect of these aberrations in the focusing of ultrashort pulses for gaussian illumination and experimental results are presented for 200fs incident pulses and for three incident angles: 0°, 5°, and 8°.
