Paper Abstract

Three commercial optical design programs are used to model familiar geometries in ultrafast optics. A set of macros has been created to calculate the pulse delay, group velocity dispersion (GVD), and third order dispersion (TOD) caused by components of an optical system. The programs have also been used to model a number of ultrafast pulse measurement systems using non-sequential ray tracing. This approach can provide evaluation, optimization, and insight into various pulse shaping schemes.
