Paper Abstract

We have designed and manufactured a simple device, named frequency tracer, (FT) for fs pulse temporal phase measurements. FT is able to present a determination of the instantaneous frequency dependence on time fs pulse together with an accurate data sufficient for a complete characterization of light field. The main feature of our designed FT device is the simplicity: no spectral apparatus is needed and fs pulse phase distortion determination does not require complicated iterative mathematical algorithms. Using a single-shot real-time implementation of this technique the multi-pass amplifier (MPA) compressor of fs Ti:sapphire laser system was adjusted.
