Paper Abstract

Spectral Interferometry for Direct Electric Field Reconstruction (SPIDER) is one of several methods for characterizing ultrashort optical pulses. SPIDER allows for the measure of the pulse duration, but also allows the extraction of the spectral phase from a femtosecond pulse. Advances in femtosecond laser development in recent years has led to commercially available femtosecond pulsed laser systems with pulse lengths of less than 10~fs. New lasing materials and advances in fiber laser technology has allowed manufacturers to produce femtosecond pulsed lasers that operate at wavelengths outside the traditional 800~nm range of Ti:sapphire. The need for commercially available pulse characterization instruments is clear. SPIDER based spectral phase measurement systems have been adapted to facilitate the advances in femtosecond laser technology.
